Just for reference, not all distros use the same initrd generator
anyway. We're trying to move to dracut, but it's certainly not universal
at the moment. I think Suse use something else (maybe they plan to move
to dracut too?) and I've no idea about Ubuntu but I doubt they use dracut.

So I'd suggest that at the moment, systemd will actually get you wider
coverage... although that's just a slightly ill-informed and hand-wave
analysis on my part. Either way, I think it's better in systemd :D
