It's more about what we're _not_ doing that what we're doing. What we're
not doing is supporting the "/ is a self-contained boot disk that is
independent of /usr" use case, simply because it's a huge maintenance
burden and it doesn't make much sense in the post-initramfs world. The
people who have a "problem" with this don't understand the burden and
have no intention of taking on the burden themselves. Even if they
wanted to take on the burden, they wouldn't be capable of it. If they
were capable of taking on this burden then they would have already
understood that the initramfs is the most reasonable solution to their
perceived problem.
