See e.g. how removing ConsoleKit just for the sake of removing it (when it 
had been coexisting with systemd just fine in F16) caused several issues, 
the worst being:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=794690
which has now been worked around by disabling the relevant PulseAudio 
functionality. (Not even the systemd author has managed to port his own 
daemon to the systemd API everyone is expected to use now!)

This is not the first time that functionality regressed due to an 
incompatible change which could have been avoided.
