i agree with you it's a pity, fedora could benefit from it , mostly for corporate/university/school deployment.

i see a link too with lennard plan for systemd

i did some tests this summer, the most simple solution is to use nbd(cow)+ipxe(http) then you can use diskless computer ( arm or nuc )

it should work too with nfs ( did not work for me without hacking dracut ) it should work too with iscsi (did not test )

if finally overlayfs will be merge in linux 3.18 it will be much more easier to work with local cache storage and readonly root
