Are there any disadvantages like higher RAM usage in the live system?
2) composing multiple squashfs images is not always practical.
we're not talking about 'allways', we're talking about 'defaults'.
talking about 'default' means, that you'll allways be able to change to
one squashfs image if that's suitable for your use case.
It is OK with the possibility to change to one squashfs image when required.
