No, sorry, they don't work out of the box yet. But you can use a remote

It does not "make sense" in the strict meaning of the term, ie I wouldn't
expect it to crash because of that, but anyway it may be the reason it
crashed. That is either a bug or it is a side effect. After all we can't
guarantee anything before running native-install (well, we can only
guarantee that native-install will run succesfully).
Other things that don't work before running native install are pipes, all
programs that use device files, network, etc etc.
