Ok, so it is not as much of a problem as I initially thought it would be.

On new large media installs I'll try to not use /usr until this gets
resolved. On current installs they all seem to be working fine (I've
not noticed any lack of functionality) I'll just wait until the
mkinitcpio patches are completed and mkinitcpio is released with /usr
mount support.
