Just a note,
I've updated parts of the page which systemd points to, in case it
finds an empty /usr at bootup:

If your distro wants to support a separate /usr, please make sure the
initramfs of that distro supports to mount /usr from *inside* the
initramfs and does not rely on 'init' to bring up the system with only
half of the tools available. There are no plans to move more tools to
the rootfs or add any more weird hacks to tools, to support booting up
a system with an empty /usr.
