I can confirm that 'switch-to-system-generation', the procedure that
carries out 'guix system switch-generation', neither invokes
'upgrade-shepherd-services' nor runs that system's activation script.

I'd be interested to hear from others who have worked on 'guix system'
as to whether or not it would be a good idea to perform the effectful
parts of a system activation for 'switch-generation'. I haven't yet
pondered upon the implications.
