"So you're saying a Linux using an initramfs can mount a userland filesystem (say FUSE-based) as /?"

Generally not recommended, but yes and I've done it as a test. The only caveat is that wherever the initramfs is located needs to be readable by GRUB or whatever bootloader you're using, but that's easily achieved by putting /boot in a dedicated filesystem.
