[arch-general] Stateless Arch

Has anyone done any research on stateless ArchLinux instances.
A stateless Arch would be one where the root filesystem is mounted
read-only and nothing changes there. Thus it can mounted over network
(using NFS, NBD and similar) by several, diskless, PCs at the same time.
I plan to have per user HOME directories on a server (again NFS or
similar), and users credentials in LDAP.
/var/run beeing a link to a tmpfs /run, and by using systemd-journal
without /var/log/journal (it will store logs in memory) a lot of things
avoid hitting the disk already.
I'd use connman for handling the net connection and it seems to require
a writable /var/lib/connman/
Anyone with any experience with this?
