IMO, it depends on design of our GENERIC behavior.
If all GENERIC kernels require bootloader loading modules for root fs,
it is not negative to disable it but an actual "option".

Anyway, I think it's better to make loading modules default for now
because design of modules are still under discussion and
I guess you need to disable it only for pxeboot.
