Okay, so, given that: isn't systemd with time-based rotation logging more
desirable than pushing that aspect off to rsyslog, because rsyslog loses the
secure logging aspect?

I would also note that the scope of organizations that have requirements for
time-based rotation are much, much larger than than the set of organizations
who need their servers to crash on error. It's an important use case, not
just a thought experiment.
