I don't think that's accurate. OSTree doesn't touch /home from what I
remember. It is only concerned with /usr and to as minimal a degree
as possible /etc. People likely still want snapshot and rollback for
their actual _data_ as well.
Exactly, I think block/filesystem level storage are potential
Many competently-maintained systems already have backup solutions for
data though. In fact, Anaconda defaults to having it on a separate
partition in some configurations precisely so that one can just blow
away the root partition and preserve /home.
Also, remember than on an OSTree system, /home is just a symlink to
/var/home - *all* local mutable state lives in /var.
