Ever got filesystem corruption (doesn't really need rw, a lucky bad block might suffice)?
My recommendation: try to understand why smart people have been doing things that way before, and think about this for a while. And then try to fix the broken attitude of declaring working things useful for others broken only because you are working hard on solving entirely different thing.
The better folks I know do work on corner cases. "Mainstream" like McDonald's usually just don't bother. If Fedora is all about GNOME desktop only (as discussed already) then this attitude fits pretty well, of course.
