Well, as cron is not broken, works fine and is understood, and the
distro will keep having it available for people that prefer it, what
need do we have to migrate the system cron jobs to systemd? What
benefit do we obtain?

Why at all dedicate any effort to the migration? For the novelty?

for one reason it gives a really nice interface of all jobs active/non-active,
last run, next run with i assume superior journal integration. from hazy
recolections cron gives very poor overview, not so easy to understand failures
and is not so easy to debug. and like i said duplicated sub-systems does not
make for cleaner system.
