Yeah, you are right, this looks like it should just work.

Though the behavior of initrd-parse-etc.service and
initrd-switch-root.service will be non-deterministic if this flag is
specified (unless I'm missing something). Maybe they should be
explicitly ordered After/Wants=sysroot.mount ? That may cause a long
timeout, but at least there will be no emergency mode.
