Another couple of ideas also came to mind -

1) Varsyms could be used

    (install 2x to standard locations e.g. /bin/foo.dynamic /bin/foo.static
     with varsym default to static and an initscript to switch dynamic early
     in the multiuser boot process for those needing pam, etc)

2) A static initrd could be used similarly to the 'populated static /boot'

Though thus far, to me, the 'populated /boot' sounds best b/c it could
potentially allow for non-initrd booting of crypto, etc and could be
leveraged for other things as mentioned, and doesn't clutter up '/'
but this is just my 2c
