Some files needs to be in system hardcoded directories (menu shortcuts, 
icons, ...). This symlinking (or overlaying using FUSE) way is a can of 
worms which IMHO should stay closed :-) What you expect to happen if you 
remove the card when system is running? And if you don't plan to remove 
the card you may as well boot from it and save yourself from all the 
headache of modifying root filesystem to support it.
