Unless your NFS client is a laptop that was suspended and moved to a
different network. Or your NFS mount is across a VPN-over-DSL tunnel
that can't traffic-shape its way out of a wet paper sack...

My point about Fedora is that even a supposedly bleeding-edge OS that
was the first mainstream adopter of systemd doesn't use every feature
that systemd supporst. They've actually been pretty conservative, only
switching when there's a clear advantage.
(And FWIW my statements apply to RHEL/CentOS too)

...Portable devices are the probably the majority these days. (Yeah,
there are eleventy-million Linux servers deployed, but only a tiny
fraction is directly administered on an individual basis..)

At least in Fedora/RHEL-land) /sbin/mount does not interact with systemd.

Ubuntu badly bungled its pulseaudio integration, and is responsible for
nearly all of the ill-will mis-directed towards PA. Other distros,
including Fedora (which actually adopted it earlier), had far fewer
problems; indeed most of the persistent issues there were from buggy
proprietary software (eg Flash) that didn't even reliably work with
