systemd already behaves exactly the same whether it's inside a
namespace or not.

cgroup v1 hierarchies can be mounted the same inside a namespace
whether the system itself is on cgroup v1 or v2. Obviously, a given
controller can only be attached to one hierarchy, so a controller
can't be used at the same time on both v1 and v2 hierarchies; however,
that is true with different v1 hierarchies too, and, given that
delegations doesn't work properly on v1, shouldn't be that much of an
I'm not just claiming it. systemd-nspawn can already be on either v1
or v2 hierarchies regardless of what the outer systemd uses.
Out of the claims that you made, the only one which holds up is that
an existing software can't make use of cgroup v2 without
modifications, which is true but at the same time doesn't mean much of
