i cant see how composting would be better than a black water system. at least the black water system disposes of the waste sanitarily.
I have a barrel system that is open to the soil. Technically you do not have to remove and distribute compost, it is digested by the composting fauna. If you have a large family and are very high volume compost, you may have to distribute the compost to your choice of use every few years or so. Landscape is popular, but gardening is a great use. I have not got that far yet as it will be quite some time before I need to distribute the smaller volume. But that is because I have the space to deal with my compost.
Most people know someone that has space and would welcome responsible composters to contribute. If not, you have to think and research. There are resources that explain in detail where composting may not be applicable, like inner city apartments etc. But earlier in this thread there are links to videos that have done their research and know the laws regarding disposal or human waste. Watch them.
Then if you decide you can not deal with it, stick with the black water system. But your comment about the black water being disposed of in a sanitary manner is quite debatable. Just as debatable as you might find the composting system to be. But like it or not, lots of people are realizing the incredible waste of valuable resources in very high volume to deal with processing black water. And...........if you were anywhere near Portland Oregon, you would hear annual stories on the news of millions of gallons of untreated sewage over flowing into the Willamette river each year. I know there are many, many other areas that have those same stories, but I live near Portland and know all too well the corrupt political cause of the annual health dangers purposefully dumped into the river.
