If one were to boot NetBSD from a CD-ROM, make no use of local hard disks,
and wished to provide some temporary writeable storage, would mounting an
MFS on top of the ISO-9660 FS with a union mount work (i.e. is union stable
these days, and does that combination of FS's work)?

The other thing that such a configuration would have to deal with is not
having any swap space configured - is this something that UVM can deal with
gracefully these days?
