That is for sure true for the phase of building a LFS system but I
cannot see a benefit in having both systems installed in the final OS.
It is not clear to me why I would want to boot once using sysv and once
using systemd. BLFS packages do either use systemd or not, depending in
which environment they are built but I hardly believe that they do it as
a runtime choice.
Can you give me a hint why I should have both on the machine at the same
time?  Or did I misunderstood the whole discussion?

Very very true!  I'd like to have more spare time to contribute a bit
more to the (B)LFS project.
