I did not insult you. I just wrote that you make claims without
any arguments that do not match reality. In contrast, I demonstrated
that your claims are false and have shown how initramfs is a superior
solution compared a stand-alone root filesystem.

It has absolutely nothing to do with systemd.

I have given you one reasonable argument that we do have a better
solution with initramfs and proved that it solves all problems
that existed with a separate /usr partition.

Your name is not nobody. There might be a modest minority of users that
use a separate /usr without an initramfs. Standard Debian installations
use initramfs since a very long time.

And as so often, this stuff breaks. And if it is not used by the people
doing the uploads (and this is a huge group of people), the chance that
it will break installations without anyone noticing early is huge.
