Not tried that but I noticed (about ten consecutive boots alternating
randomly one or the other option, see below) what confirms this:

- If I leave boot command line unchanged and only add " S" + F10 --> boot
OK in single user mode

this is the output of
cat /proc/cmdline in this case

root=UUID=0d65e6ec-b743-4f8f-8dd8-a02a5e4593a0 ro rd.lvm=0
SYSFONT=latarcyrheb-sun16 KEYTABLE=us rd.luks=0 LANG=en_US.UTF-8 rhgb quiet

(donna why I  don't see the S....)

- If I cut off last two words "rhgb quiet" and add " S"  ---> KO
I'm put to a dracut shell

So I solved my paerticular problem but it sounds strange that not having
rhgb and quiet produces abort to a dracut shell with that messages....
