I'd like to know what the big vendors are thinking about this.
Introducing risks due lazy/snooty systemd developers can not be

Most of the 'lazy/snooty systemd developers' work for the biggest
vendors. :)

Does this mean that IBM will enforce that /usr and
other useful partitions will be only avaiable by
using initramfs?


WHY? You don't need /usr on a separate partition anymore.

I was first exposed to UNIX in 1988. Back then the largest harddrives were not big enough to fit the whole operating system let alone user login info plus any user data. There was no choice but to split some directories off onto a separate drives (partitions).

Let's get our heads out of the sand and our asses and get with modern times.

The only directories I see as being beneficial on a separate partition are the "tmp" directories which can fill a drive rather quickly if not watched.
