Given that unix has evolved with the notion that /usr could be
a read-only mounted NFS or CD-ROM partition, I'd say that the chances
Even / has read-only mounting in mind. Most people mount
their system mail queue, news spool, and CVS repositories with
noatime, and it works fine. Most applications have learned not to
trust atime except in very specific situations (/var/lock is a
possibility, though unconfirmed).
