That sounds like you want to put /bin and /sbin on it's own partition.
How exactly are you going to do that, if even the mount command itself
is in /bin? By keeping local copies in the /bin directory on the /
partition? Or do you mount / ro (which is also somehow problematic
because some files there are regularly written to, for example mtab)?
