If you're using the uBoot that came with the DreamPlug, kernel upgrades
or boot process changes will probably give you trouble.  If you're using
the upgraded uBoot [0], everything should be fine.  Ian might recall
details I've forgotten, though.

I've actually shared the same uInitrd between images before, it had no
trouble booting.  That's the uInitrd that's in the unstable FreedomBox
image [1], actually.
