Well I tried to run GuixSD without initrd and it's not possible
yet. Besides mounting root partition, it's also used to start the
initial guile script (/run/current-system/boot).
However, that's something I'd like to see :)

You're right there's something fishy here. But, if we want to remove the
notion of <boot-parameters> from (gnu bootloader ...), that would mean
that callers of "configuration-file-generator" will have to adapt their
API and that's a more consequent rework.
Ludo, any thoughts ?
