  Well, in fact that is what the Ubuntu LiveCD does, and is my preferred
  aproach for the future, simply because it will support more architectures
  and reduces efforts (if d-i works, the LiveCD will also work). 
  I hope we will talk about it on the DevCamp and if nobody does it before I
  will try this approach after the DevCamp, it would be great for users and
  to test upgrades, in fact it can be used also for installed systems... ;)

  I've always done LiveCDs on a chroot, sometimes using a separate partition
  for convienience, but you can do it for sure (in fact, I use debootstrap and
  install unatended using preseeding; if I don't remember wrong I'm almost
  sure that you can install Skolelinux that without changes, simply installing
  the debian-edu-install package).
