What does that mean? What is expensive and risky?

Please keep this discussion on topic.
The OPs question is on how to determine which init is running.
So this thread shouldn't derail into another {end,use}less systemd yes-or-no srt of monologues.
Thanks in advance.

*If you don't dig what I mean please have a look at the various systemd threads we've hosted the past years and see if your opinion wasn't voiced already. Chances are it was. A gazillion times over and over and over.
