Maybe an issue for Debian, my Debian install does use SysVinit. My
Arch's systemd doesn't cause RT issues, OTHO I'm not aware about a
service that is started with RT priority, just rtirq is started to set
up RT priorities. What do you want to start, that does need RT priority?
Jackd? I would start jackd when starting the session, not during

I guess it will be like that and nothing is more disgusting than a
hybrid system. Currently it seems to be that Debian doesn't change the
naming from eth0 to enp3s0, OTOH some users seemed to have trouble with
changed names. I wonder if Debian packagers will continuing to separate
packages for systemd and udev.

While I dislike systemd, especially journalctl, I welcome that all major
distros will switch to systemd. As you already mentioned, it's nice, if
all Linux installs will use the same initializing system. However, if
they have different defaults, e.g. eth0 vs enp3s0, individual tweaking
still is needed.
