I think that's precisely the concern. In the event that F14 goes back
to upstart, the final release will use a configuration that may not have
received much testing. If we want to claim that it's safe to switch
back to upstart after beta, we need to be testing that configuration
now, along with the systemd configuration.
Well that wouldn't be a systemd issue but a flaw in our feature process.
We have Feature foo with rollback plan to go back to bar.
We decide to revert foo due to bug X, Y and Z and we and up with foo
after beta ...
