Here's the IRC logs of the decision to delay SystemD, and some well-informed comments of reactions.

SystemD is about daemon management. Launching, restarting an restarting them. Benifits are more stability in case of a daemon crash; self-healing capabilities without restarting other related daemons (dependancies).

Just one of the advantages is faster boot times due to bein able to launch multiple daemons at once, even if the have depencies. This is also useful for launching daemon during runtime.
I did noticed Fedora 14 still uses hald, which is deprecated and it was the last/slowest to start up completely, Ubuntu 10.10 doesn't load it anymore on a default install.
