because without forking you just have one process, don#t need to guess 
the changing main-PID and watching the service for things like 
"Restart=always" is way easier - if that initial PID is gone the service 
has failed and needs to be restarted

well and because not every service has listening sockets other daemon 
relies on and with foreground/type=simple you can fire up all that 
daemons of that type in parallel without wait for the forking and so 
boot much faster wich is fine until explcit or implicit dependencies are 
part of the game - the implicit dependencies maybe very different and 
depend on the local environemt and what services are started for what 
purpose and when
