For the record: it doesn't actually work. When the daemon script is run
by systemd, there is no stdin to read from and the read command above
returns immediately with a failure.

Which brings another question: is there any plan to implement sleep as
a bash builtin? This is the last external command in several of my
scripts, it doesn't seem particularly difficult to implement, and that
would solve the problem at hand.
