The question is, if moving files around is a good way to spend
maintainers time. I think not. Our ressources are already stretched
thin, and there are better ways to invest our time.

You can keep /usr on a separate partition. You just need to use an
initramfs then, which will mount /usr.
Adding support for that to initramfs-tools should not be too hard.
dracut already supports this.
