7 I'd suggest...
9 This feature can optionally replace... can uninstall.
11 IOW...
13 s/will also/can optionally/
15 s/should/can/
18 It sounds less menacing than your suggested wording, making it clearer
19 that it's an optional replacement and lessening the apparent conflict and
20 possible confusion with the next sentence saying it can still be used if
21 desired.
23 I'd say that's a particularly good idea given the sensitivity around the
24 "all engulfing gray goo" that systemd has seemed to many to have become.
25 Given that upstream specifically designed this feature to cooperate with
26 existing biosdevname installations, let's not unnecessarily poke that
27 hornet's nest by implying otherwise, even if the next sentence /does/
28 basically say it's an optional change anyway. =:^/
