If compelling arguments were used, yes, you can sometimes trigger people to
change their minds and arrive at a consensus. But outright dismissing them
as if that will make them disappear is what won't work.

Udev is the only package I have installed in my VM setup that fails at boot
with a separate /usr and no initramfs. And that isn't even a fatal failure,
but it is a failure none the less, at least by virtue of OpenRC flagging the
fact that udev returned an error code. Everything else works fine.
But it's not udev that is broke, is it? It's my setup, right? I've been
wrong for the last 10 years? Why was this ever referenced then in the
Security Handbook? See Code Listing 1.1:

It's human nature to complain or otherwise voice dissent, especially when
someone or something comes along and declares that what used to JustWork(TM)
Does that mean my dissent matters? Probably not. But that's not going to
stop me from trying.
