Not really from my pov.

I'm not seeing anyone in enterprise environment with enterprise hardware 
using a livecd/usb and if they are they would not be using fcoe lldpad, 
iscsi, iscsid, mdmonitor etc for ( a one time ) live bootup and even if 
they did they would possess the knowledge of enable it in that case .

I'm not aware of anyone that uses a livecd/usb on a hardware with fcoe 
lldpad, iscsi, iscsid, mdmonitor ( server hw ).

I guess it all falls down to who are we targeting with the livecd/usb.
