You are thinking of a scenario that you believe is the most important... Nothing wrong, just saying your making some general assumptions.

The thing one cannot underline enough is that right now you cannot
operate on the static, vendor-shipped, read-only data in a single
command. But you need exactly that for handling OS snapshots, and for
doing proper state-less systems. Why? because taking individual
snapshots of /bin, /sbin, /lib/, /lib64, /usr is not atomic, but taking
one of /usr alone is.
