I am not aware that it was an official Fedora goal to make it boot
from a ro /. Would be good if it was, though.

However, no daemon should ever touch files in /etc automatically. That
NM does that is pretty bad style. Instead resolv.conf should be
replaced by a symlink to /var and manipulated there.
