Is there anything non systematic by that definition?

See TheOtherDave.

In what way does it promote Bayesianism to call it systematic?

See E.T. Jaynes calling certain frequentist techniques “ad-hockeries”. EDIT: BTW, I didn't have Bayesianism in mind when I replied to this ancestor -- I should stop replying to comments without reading their ancestors first.
