Ok, implemented in current live-initramfs:

I think this resolves your issue, further improvements with regards to error 
messages will hopefully take place in reimplementation of live-initramfs 2.x.

ACK, though I don't want to implement any code in live-initramfs until I know 
what's happening with redesign of upstream.

if one tries to start grml toram=foo.squashfs with a wrong file name, a number
of error messages appear that lead more to "grml image b0rken" instead of "user
error, fix filename".

I'd appreciate if the toram mechanism would give a more helpful error message
such as "file foo.squashfs not found".
