Go back and look at what Goswin wrote in the first place:

It sounds like he feels that having an initramfs is very fragile the way
Debian handles it now. If / is outside of lvm, then when the initramfs
breaks, he can boot up without it and get to a place where he can
regenerate an initramfs. That's not "a religious taboo against
initramfs." That's sensible troubleshooting behavior.
