And init had never any idea what a service was doing after it
double-forked, it could never monitor it, could not tell much about
its current state, had no history about the behaviour, could not even
safely shut it down.

Systemd is a real service babysitter, and tracks everything across the
entire life time of all services; the logs are just integral part of
systemd's job. It also provides the kernel and userspace early boot
logging support, and the out-of-the-box service stdout/stderr logging
support; that's why the journal daemon is mandatory and not an add-on.
