I hadn't thought of this aspect, it is a concern.

On the other hand if systemd using distros are carrying their own
service files then each of them will be rediscovering the issues
themselves, possibly after we've triaged it here for the Nth time. Even
if the set of upstream service files are not kept completely up to date
at least they are in a common location, with some >0 chance of getting
update when things change.

I'm not sure which way I am leaning right now.
