Yes, there is one but the maintainer has not applied or rejected it 
so far.

Fellow developers, please do not waste your time moving stuff to /lib: 
it's a task both endless and futile because nowadays it is clear that 
the upstream maintainers of various stuff do not support a standalone 
/usr mounted by the init scripts: if /usr is a standalone file system 
then it must be mounted in the initramfs.
So let's just fix initramfs-tools and be done with this forever.
