Not for *installing* from a read-only file system, just like the CD-ROM, as you
point out it is not needed.

However, rc.initdiskless may have other uses, such as with a very crunchgen'd
minified or NanoBSD read-only embedded system.  But in those cases, /bin and
/sbin *should* be there as well (even if linked from /rescue), so ultimately
the proposed change *should* be OK.

From what I understood, the underlying issue is to share an installation media
via NFS and use UEFI PXE to install to another systems?
