That would probably blow up in your face, since a lot of programs used
during early boot end up accessing /usr and would stay stuck, since they
try to use locale stuff. I wouldn't be surprised if mount itself is one
Oh, yeah, good luck moving locale stuff to /, btw. ;-)
And to support Plymouth fully you'd have to move all the plymouth ttf
stuff and so to / too.
