any initramfs generator has to add relevant firmware to the initramfs out
of the box without user intervention and load it on boot.
yaird doesn't do that.

it feel really 90ish to combine drivers *and* firmware.
request_firmware() has been in linux-2.6 since long.
modprobe gives the relevant firmware output since lenny version at least.

there has been no progress since yaird 0.0.13 otherwise you'd be happy
to list it.
