i agree, however, my last brush with dracut, i don't think it's ready yet. and 
on top of that, it produces huge initrds (initramfs'es), which imho slows down 
the booting processes (especially on PXE network installs)

furthermore, i may be wrong, but wasn't udev actually started in the initrd? i 
thought i only saw an udev-post service after initrd.

but i have no perfect solution, and mkinitrd is not maintained upstream afaict
