This is clearly better that the current situation, so +0.5!

But as we are on the topic, could we consider directly moving to kernel-install 
to manage programs used to make the system able to boot (initramfs, bootladers)

Initramfs rebuild logic is in a script in /usr/lib/kernel/install.d. Like grub
or others bootloaders.

I have a POC[1] here and I'm using it with good feedback since months.
