Neither.  My scripting need to know what is the required format.  I 
think this matters on initdiskless roots.

But expect POLA claims on this.  Get a cluster safe working is not as 
easy as you can expect.  And any downtime have really expensive cost.

Check any change on this with a real initdiskless setup before.  Also, 
speak loud and clear (HEADS-UP).
