Yes, this is really astonishing. I think the reason is that L.P. never learnt any other programming technique than writing daemons, so he believes everything must be solved by them.
There was a discussion in German usenet about the sense of systemd settng the systems time locale and sending changing over dbus to all applications: The fanboys' argument was that on a laptop during flight you want your desktop clock to show the correct time. It did not come to their mind that this would break servers where users are logged in from different timezones and that the appropriate place to "fix" the problem is the application which displays the clock and not an exchange of the operation system.

As currently my xdm service does start for unknown reason, I thought about if pam is really needed.

I'm using sys-auth/pam_mount for mounting LUKS encrypted home and additional devices. Is that a major reason to keep pam?
