This sounds like a very good idea, yes.

Or, maybe even make it such that initramfs acts like a file system,
that will just de-cpio the content of a block device to a ramfs.

- requires less or no changes to existing initrd
- one can experiment with initramfs loaded from other sources than
an initrd

- needs more infrastructure than plain initramfs
