The latter is okay for systems booted with initramfs. But I
recall that it was decided some not too long time ago that
people not using it should ensure their /usr is available
by themselves.

I do not agree with usrmerge, and I fully expect to be able
to use Debian without that systemd-originating concept.

But I agree it’s “probably” late enough, although nice to
be considerate to people whose systems aren’t.
