Hi Goffredo,

upstream value for the sysrq setting was chosen as a safe default.
If you thing that the default should be changed, it is definitely
reasonable to discuss it upstream on systemd-devel at l.fd.o.

The mechanism to set the default is unlikely to change though.
Modulo the bugs with ordering that Michael pointed out, this
mechanism is nice and clean, and provides a safe way for the
administrator to locally override settings.

Also, this is a basic system setting, where it makes sense to change
the kernel default by default, so it is natural that systemd
does that. The goal of the systemd project is to take care of the
basic system setup.
