IMO: There's a danger with running the validator as a system service:

When moving to a different machine, you might accidentally turn your old validator back on, and get slashed.

So it's probably a good practice to start that one manually, or have some kind of prompt.

Anyways, thanks for this awesome guide! Perhaps it could be turned into a github repo so we could all contribute.
