Hmm I have not tested but I would expect you could. However, if you desire to use persistence with the USB then no.
You may also want to consider the fetch= boot param. From the man of live-initramfs:
Another form of netboot by downloading a squashfs image from a
given url, copying to ram and booting it. Due to current
limitations in busyboxs wget and DNS resolution, an URL can not
contain a hostname but an IP only.
Not working: http://example.com/path/to/your_filesystem.squashfs
Also note that therefore it´s currently not possible to fetch an image
from a namebased virtualhost of an httpd if it is sharing the ip with
the main httpd instance.
