Oh, that's simple, separate-/usr-without-initramfs will not work and
will not be supported :)
Again, the fact that it works for some people today is pure luck, and
odds are, it really isn't, but it's really hard to determine this given
that the init system they are using doesn't provide a good feedback loop
for this type of thing.
Hence, it is not supported.
