Others intentionally remove plymouth because we want a boot process
with all the beautiful text messages flowing by :-)

In some cases, removing plymouth solves problems. For instance, it
doubles the size of initrd, meaning that some people with a separate
/boot partition had it overflowed; yes, even on fresh installs,
because YaST was not adapted to suggest a bigger boot (bigger initrd,
and up to 3 kernels by default during updates). Some new installs got
a "/boot" of only 80 megs (yes, there are bugzillas about this. Not
mine, I don't know the numbers).

Some people had problems with plymouth interfering with X startup. I
don't remember the details. I suppose there are bugzillas.

Yes, I understand that many people like a nice graphical boot process.
No objection to that, as long as others can easily disable it.

Why are you stating it it mandatory, since it isn't and nobody is
speaking about make it mandatory ?
