Kill(2) sends an unaccepted signal to proc 1, in apparent contradiction
to its man page, and some versions of init die and some don't. That
doesn't sound like a problem with the init process.
I don't have a horse in this race either, it was just odd that the first
conclusion was that systemd must be broken and we're going to quote the
man page for a different program to prove it. As the OP said, we are
not going to file a bug report against systemd, because they reject bug
reports (perhaps because they are in different components).
