From that page:

“There is no way to reliably bring up a modern system with an empty /usr.”

False, on the assumption that by that they mean ‘with /usr mounted after init
has been started’.

Or at least it was when I last booted the box on which this was written (last
month; and as that's running wheezy and has reasonably recent hardware, I'd
consider it ‘modern’¹).

Granted, there's a dependency on what's installed and what's required to
bring it up..
