Looks like there are different opinions about what is the best setup. For
reference, here is a discussion on the systemd list which indicates that they
plan to mount the ESP at /boot:
http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/systemd-devel/2013-January/008273.html

AFAICT there are several proposals so far:
1. ESP at /boot/efi, separate /boot as usual, only bootloader in ESP
2. ESP at /boot/efi, /boot on /, bootloader in ESP, bootloader implements all
features to access raid, lvm, crypto etc. itself.
3. ESP at /boot/efi, /boot on /, bootloader in ESP, bootloader setup script
copies kernel&initrd to ESP.
4. ESP at /boot, bootloader (optional), kernel and initrd in ESP. kernel&initrd
would need to be packaged in e.g. /boot/EFI/opensuse then.

1. and 2. require feature rich bootloaders like grub2 while 3 and 4 don't.
