sysinit.target and basic.target are exact equivalent of sysvinit
runlevels - they are hard serialization points between groups of
services so that systemd will not proceed with next group until all
services in previous group are started. The difference is that these
runlevels are hardcoded and not configurable. All that OP asked for
was a way to make it more flexible and customizable.
