There is one major question: how will this interface to distributions?

How can distributions add their own initializations and configurations or
are they going to put an initrd on top of the kernel initrd? If this will
have a kernel and a distribution part, it poses the question whether klibc
has to be distributed with the kernel at all (a libc has a standard API
after all) and the kernel just provides the kernel specific parts to
whatever the distribution provides.
