I know you can run scripts from unit files, except that all the
functionality which has now been centralized and implemented
within systemd cannot be easily manipulated and scripted as
before. The recent inconsistency is fstab parsing is a symptom
why duplicating functionality is a bad idea.

Which inconsistency?

How did you customize mount -a, which was called unconditionally,
before systemd?

If mountpoints were specified with trailing slashes in fstab
they had to be passed exactly like this to mount later. Since
systemd's own parser apparently strips that off mounting fails.
While this is a bug in mount, it also illustrates why having two
different implementations for the same job is not a good idea.
