I agree.

There are already  some initiatives that already try to answer those problems

- FreeBSD Services Control (monitoring, restarting)


-  Parallelism


You can also think on jails for children containment (what systemd is
currently doing with cgroups).

IMHO working with small simple feature improvement  with rcNG glue is
a better way than introducing an SMF / launchd monster
