that you have sometimes things where you want to make sure a specific 
order and say: "don't start my target until basic target is started and 
don't start anything until all the services of my target are up"

it would make ordering way easier and give a ton of flexibility for 
unit-writers (which are not only distributions but end-users/admins with 
very specific environments)
