That's a step away from a shareable/read-only /. That makes it a bad
e.g. with the Shark, we created a read-only shareable root partition
that you could boot multiple clients off of simultaneously. being
able to support that, _especially_ when using diskless clients with
dhcp, is somewhat important.
