Which failure is that supposed to be?

The "systemd guys" are not the ones that came up with any kind 
update/upgrade/packaging policy so you are probably speaking of 

I think the general idea was that maintainer(s) open a ticket with FESCO 
where they asked them to grant exception to the general rule and be 
allowed to push unit files to the GA release should the need arise but 
feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.
