I know remote logging is important. But, even if systemd supported it, it
wouldn't be _on_ by default, would it? Given that, is installing rsyslogd
to support this really a blocker?

In enterprise settings, one doesn't want every random machine being a log
server -- setting up a specialized machine to do that job is completely
normal. That's probably true at your house too.
