I'm wondering the same thing since once busybox 1.20.0 hits stable you
will be able to have a separate /usr without an initramfs quite easily
if that's what you want to do.
When you emerge this version of busybox with the "sep-usr" use flag, you
get a binary in / called ginit. Now just follow the instructions you got
when you emerged it.
