Yes, but not everybody doesn't use initrd images. I'm working to add an 
fbsplash support on debian in a easy way: one of its goals is to run fbspash 
with a standard kernel.
fbsplash is incompatible with initrd image but it need an initramfs image to 
work (it is done by splashutils). Fbsplash works fine in my pc with this 
experimental kernel (it uses the standard debian config with scsi, ata and 
sata compiled ad built in), this kernel is for mass use and doesn't need an 
initrd image.
