Anything that is proposed to replace rsyslogd should be capable of getting
logs not only from a local machine, but also from network devices
(wifi, cable/xDSL modem, VoIP phone) and from other machines. Until
journald can't handle it, I don't think it is ready to be the default logger,
as it won't fill even my home network needs.

So, the big missing feature seems to be syslog UDP/TCP protocol support.
