Hm, I just tested KillMode=mixed with getty at .service on installations
which didn't have libpam-systemd enabled.
This broke the usage of screen, since it killed the screen sessions.
I don't think we should change the behaviour as users might rely on that.

For sulogin using services, like emergency.service, I guess one can
argue, that screen is not something you typically use here.
