You have the freedom to fork Fedora. Good luck!
A distribution is about integration of different components, not about a
random hodegepodge of stuff which doesn't work together. You should not
expect all the software to cooperate with an obsolete init system. (In
particular, why should services have to ship legacy initscripts (or native
upstart configuration) along with the native systemd modules (which are
required for efficiency)? systemd is also going to take up more and more
roles in the very near future, e.g. replacing ConsoleKit.)

PulseAudio was actually replaceable when it was initially introduced. It
even still is to some extent. IMHO that only makes it harder to make things
For KDE, it was just plain impossible to support both 3.5 and 4.0 in the
same distribution without violating the FHS. All the other distributions
which offer both versions of KDE are installing at least one to a non-FHS
prefix. Supporting only 4.0 also meant we could tweak kdelibs3 to integrate
better into a KDE 4 environment, e.g. we use the KDE 4 KHelpCenter for help,
the KDE 4 DrKonqi if a kdelibs3 app crashes etc.
As I said in another message, it's not systemd's fault if your fstab is
invalid. Fix your fstab.

I also consider that a mistake. The issues found during testing were all
fixed in time for the Fedora 14 release. Reverting the feature achieved

How would you not be able to live with /run?
