Sounds OK.

Sounds OK.  We might be using compat_sunos soon, though.

You can blow them away if you want to.  They were the base of our
port, but they aren't terribly useful at this point.

It is.  As root, you can write to it still.  As another user, you
wouldn't be able to.  This allows the system to continue to function
if a user's run-away program fills up the rest of the disk (or something
along those lines)...
