Why shouldn't I be able to configure a vnd pointing to a file on a read only

# mount -t cd9660 -r /dev/cd0a /mnt
# cd /mnt
# ls -l bootlapnetcd1.fs
-r--r--r--  1 root  wheel  2949120 Oct  8 11:21 bootlapnetcd1.fs
# vnconfig -v -c vnd0 bootlapnetcd1.fs
vnconfig: bootlapnetcd1.fs: Read-only file system

Couldn't I then mount -r the vnd?
