I don't know how much speed difference there is but security is true if
you disable support for loading modules.
On my own dedicated server I always did it like that though.

But the initrd/initramfs support is totally independent of this.
It should be possible to have a very little initrd which just handles
the LABEL= parameter and nothing more.
