When I attended the last UDS there was actually a push coming from the arm folks to do away with the initrd on systems that do not require it ( no LVM ) to accelerate boot time by not wasting time loading another file, which apparently is rather slow on the arm boot loader.

Both share initramfs-tools, but they don't use the same version and
really do things subtily different.  I've just spent far too much time
making something work in the Debian version just to notice it needs
major updates for Ubuntu.
