Okay. I didn't realize that ramfs was explicit in the kernel. I thought
it was an option. This also adds to my thinking about the single-user vs
halt option. In that case, if the system has already booted successfully
before, then I concur that filesystem corruption could be a rather
likely culprit making single-user mode dangerous as the default. I
therefore repeal my original question.
