Well, I think it's too early for that. 3rd party software tends to be
written for LSB. Also, Debian/Ubuntu only very recently switched to
sytemd. Out of fairness we owe them to support the old stuff natively
for a while, the same way we benefitted from that during the fedora

Also, there are still ~100 sysv scripts in fedora too...
