i think you misread the post - IMHO the intention was that once again
a feature with zero benefit was acknowledged without caseful think about
the negative impact

maybe the "dracut-hostonly" feature was nonsense at all to save how many seconds at boot?
the ones who like it and knowing what they are doing used it long ago
the ones with less technical background have more potential problems now
