I guess you missed the part that it did nothing if the file existed.

Even after spending what 8 years in Fedora's QA (  longer than any of 
their so called hired employee working in that area ) as well as 
handling the systemd integration for wide variety of component I was not 
even allowed to see RHEL systemd integration bug trackers until in some 
case other Red Hat employees ranted over their coworkers how stupid they 
were not allowing the guy handling the integration doing so.

I know first hand the state of systemd in Fedora and I have seen the 
state it's in RHEL and I know Red Hat did nothing to improve the 
situation from what it was in Fedora not even make some of those 
implementations "enterprise grade" so regarding the rest of your rant 
neither upstream nor Fedora ( despite Red Hat royally abusing it's 
community and shape it in it's image ) has any control over any 
decisions Red Hat makes about it's RHEL release so use that support 
contract you are paying Red Hat for and wreak havoc with them.

Hopefully that havoc from you and from other customers will ring some 
wakeup bells with it's managers and get them thinking.
