How about installing the Dock extension on the liveuser account, and
configuring it to *not* auto-hide? That way we get a solution that
a) many users use anyway
b) is aesthetically pleasing

If we install this via RPM, this will result in two extra RPMs on the
installed system (gnome-shell-extension-common and -dock) -- but if
installed locally (via extensions.gnome.org) it'll be contained within
liveuser.
