Please explain, if possible, what are the implications for people not
running under systemd.
Should we avoid gnome-user-share completely on non-systemd cases? What
are the implications to the gnome-settings-daemon side of things then?

We support all init systems. Work is ongoing to support logind
interface without systemd. We already have independent implementations
of timedated, hostnamed and localed. Additional dependencies beyond
those and logind without careful consideration and announcement not
really welcome.
I personally am a happy user of systemd under Gentoo though.
