Does it really matter? What people in the
separate-/usr-without-initramfs camp really want is continued support
for the "/ is a self-contained boot disk that is independent of /usr"
use case, because without such support, the
separate-/usr-without-initramfs approach that they're accustomed to
becomes impossible.

The /usr merge [1] can be viewed as just one of many signs of a
widespread shift away from supporting the heavy burden of the "/ is a
self-contained boot disk that is independent of /usr" use case.
