You do have to use a rather different filesystem layout than what comes with conventional Linux to have a read-only root filesystem. I've been doing it for years, though. Sometimes it's as easy as having symbolic links from the root filesystem to a read/write filesystem, but other times it's as hard as having to modify a program to eliminate a hardcoded file name.
I also do daily automated backups. Deleting my home directory wouldn't be particularly severe for me.
