There were some discussion about this at UDS yesterday during the
session about dropping initrd images for systems that don't need them.

it could break things since Debian doesn't do this.

Since it was accepted that the initrd can be dropped for systems that
don't need it if it can be implemented in time for Oneiric, it makes it
even less likely that moving the binaries will be implemented.
