If we hadn't this conversation it is pretty likely I would still have
that question even with the "patch". Maybe we could plainly state that
the persistent storage feature must work, i.e. there must be at least
one tool that successfully creates the USB boot media correctly? If we
phrase it this way, it seems clearer to me.
* The live images must properly support mounting and using a persistent
storage overlay for the entire system and/or one for the /home
partition, if such an overlay or overlays have been correctly written to
the medium from which the image is booted
Does that better encapsulate that we require the images to work properly
wrt persistent overlay, but the tools can be fixed post-release?
