systemd memory footprint

I just checked memory consumption of init versus systemd in F15. It seems 
at the moment systemd is taking 4-5 times more memory compared to init 
(1.5-3MB vs. 600kB). May we expect the final release to be somewhat 
smaller? I know the "top" values are often not the best source to compare 
memory usage, but ATM I have no better one. It may be, that systemd saves 
memory somewhere else.

For embedded devices every MB more on essential process like init makes me worry...
