Avoiding shell scripts is something a lot of the new init systems do and makes good sense but systemd fully supports sysvinit scripts including several distro extensions for compatibility and will continue to do so. It merely won't be the default. Although offtopic, I would note that jackd developer definitely does not agree with your idea of what overlaps and does not.
