You, um, can't. A number of things (notably arch-dependent things) get
involved even before the initramfs runs, and can consume args as they
wish. (Adding extra arguments is *very* useful for initramfses and
initrds; arguments to mount root filesystems in unusual ways, to run
emergency repair shells just before or just after mounting root, and,
well, to trigger anything else you can think of).
However, it's quite unlikely that a random argument you pick will
name-clash, and if it does you can always rename it.
