By "obsoleting" xinetd I hope you don't mean removal, at least in the
near term. As detailed in
systemd does not have feature parity with xinetd, in all respects,
certain functionality, such as "only_from" require creating iptables
rules, which with SuSEfirewall2 isn't always pretty. Meaning such
addition are not are not supported by "yast firewall services" which
requires custom scripting to add values to
will be extended to more easily achieve this, unless I've missed
something, but who know if/when that is coming.

I'm not saying this isn't the "better" approach, just that xinetd
shouldn't be removed anytime soon and that it has it's place.

The plan is to obsolete it on all possible places to reduce its usage
only to points hwere it makes sense. As you pointed with the blog.
