The clients will also want to be able to write to /etc/mtab and will
probably need to be able to write a few logs in /var/log. Might be
worth checking the 'securing debian' howto, that suggests having a
read-only local root on systems for security reasons, and probably has
notes on how to cope with the few bits that need to be written to (symlinks?).
