It should. I like this option the best.

(Splitting out subpackages is a lot of work, generates overhead of thousands
of trivial packages, and most importantly, is confusing for the user.

Options like manually installing fakesystemd or rpm-e-systemd-ing
after installation seems are hacks that quickly get annoying, especially
that you need to repeat them after upgrades.)
