Subject: [gentoo-dev] Warn users not to do separate /usr partition without proper initramfs in the handbook?

Since running separate /usr without mounting it from initramfs on top of
/ before init is and has been broken with udev for a long time now[1][2][3]

Can we warn users about not doing the separate /usr mistake in the handbook?
