AFAICS it's got the very same vulnerabilities as the flag-file method,
ie, if you RPM install or upgrade while your mountable data directory
is offline, you can still get screwed.

Isn't the most bulletproof solution to make initdb more careful about
overwriting an existing data directory?

It is extremely careful. The point is that the NFS mount will hide the existing datadir from initdb.
