It's software. Of course you can do everything you can do in POSIX shell
script :)

But I doubt that something like this is practicable -- we also should
avoid overengineering.

Like I was thinking by myself if we should teach kexec runscript to
return persistent name instead (utilizing lsblk for example) but this
will raises question like what to do if tools aren't available and maybe
user's start environment can't even handle root=UUID=... value :/
