--- Comment #8 from Warner Losh <imp@FreeBSD.org> ---
I think this is a bad change.
It breaks / and /usr being on different partitions. The typical install had a
local-ish / for /etc (with /etc being mounted on a MFS to allow changes and a
way to persist it to disk) and everything being read-only mounted to avoid
filesystem corruption on power failure.

Why don't you have /rescue? It's on / in default installations. you have to go
out of your way to delete it.

The isos you talk about are installation isos. They don't have everything on
them (they also don't have compilers, for example). If you are looking for an
image, you'll likely be happier using one of the CI images we make available.
Those have a full installation of base on them. Or extract from the base image
sets that are on these installation CDs in /usr/freebsd-dist/base.txz.
