Still curious about this, but I went ahead and pulled the trigger
anyway, and it was about as uneventful as it gets...
Took all of 6 minutes (and almost all of that was rsyncing /usr)...
Made a gentoo forum post in case anyone else wants to do this and may be
a little hesitant like I was...
Thanks to all who patiently answered my questions...
I now have /usr merged back into / and no longer have to choose between
using an intramfs (which I vehemently did not want to do) and updating
my system without fear of breakage.
