uSD related: default rc.conf and fstab

I'm wondering about uSD related settings (in the default image).

In order to reduce the writes on the card, wouldn't be advisable to


in the initial /etc/rc.conf (to register this particular point)? (there
are probably others but this one tends to create a lot of data in /var).

And could one set in /etc/fstab root with "noatime"?

The main problem I see will be a less near fs->fs_time when there are
only accesses but no writes in the root filesystem, fs->fs_time being
used when calling setrootfstime() in the absence of a NTP server
and a battery backed-up clock; but since in this case the time is
already "wrong"...

Would there be other problems with setting / with noatime?
