A while ago I created a kiosk workstation that booted from PXE, downloaded its
root file system if newer (which was just squashfs, thus non-writable), and
then did a unionfs mount (I think these days you'd use aufs) to run.
It was a really elegant solution that worked well. Unfortunately, I don't have
those kiosks in operation anymore and their code is lost to the winds, but I
can try to give tips if you want to try to build one this way.
