live-manual suggests using "/ union" to workaround certain limitations
of persistence with custom mounts. I guess the word "workaround" is
not the best one but it is descriptive enough. I link to the paragraph


Perhaps this "workaround" works for you since you have a long list of
directories under "/" that you would like to make persistent. So, in
short, instead of using

/lib union
/usr union
/var union

in your persistence.conf file you can simply use:

/ union

Be warned that this will make "/" persistent as in "full persistence".
I do not know if this will fill your bill.

I hope this helps.
