Yes the hook could be versioned, but dracut has --kver and some other stuff we
can use to rebuild the image when you update the kernel and the kernel on disk
is different than the booted one.

You can use the -dracut nomenclature for now, or you can replace the default initramfs.
Your choice really. As long as you have the fallback working, shouldn't be a problem.

I also cannot emphasize this more, people testing dracut should probably have an arch iso
handy in case something goes wrong. Other than that, please lets test everything possible.
