That could be an option...
The things I tent to change is loglevel, different built-in module
debug options and in rare cases the console to tty0.
If I have different SD cards with different partition tables and more
than one rootfs partition, I want to be able to change which rootfs
partition to use.

I like to setup for example:
p1: only to hold the kernel
p2: rootfs1
p3: rootfs2

Then it would be nice to be able to switch which rootfs to use by just
updating a file in p1.
