the concept of runlevels is obsolete.

So, what complicated mechanism will or have the the systemd people
come up
with to replace the simplicity of S or 1 or 2 or 3 or 5 on cmdline to
override the default runl^H^H^H^Htarget? :-p

Well lets see, how simple are S, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6?
They actually hide a whole pile of shell scripting.
You've traded simplicity of expression for (a) obscurity of meaning and
(b) the need to be a programmer to make any adjustments

What does the systemd approach offer instead?

Well for a start there's clarity of meaning that is absent from the
sysvinit method:

We've got

multi-user.target
or graphical.target

Oh, so one need only type (at the cli):

multi-user.target

to get the equivalent of init 3

or (again at the cli)

graphical.target

to get the same as init 5.
