If a zypper run aborts, and dracut has not been run when it was needed, will
the system still be bootable?

Even if it would, none of these packages are essential (beside the
kernel eventually). Since the whole thing is a "transaction" anyway,
aborting in the middle leaves an inconsistent system behind. It may work
by luck, most of the time.

These packages are just broken. They must be converted to %postrans.

dracut run immediately after kernel installation is intentional
(should be somewhere in archives, I asked this a while ago).
