It's a second issue. Consider a setup with alternative root. Right now
you have to reboot to switch to that, a better idea might be to repeat
the questions (root, swap, init). That's IMO better than just repeating
the question of init. It still leaves the question of access permissions
for the console if boot -a is not specified.
