First, I am a complete newbie w/ OSSI. I have however built
clusters sharing a common root using a RW tmpfs root unionfs'd over a RO
nfs root. All local node config data is stored locally in a tmpfs area,
and changes are COW'd up to the tmpfs and mask originals on the nfs
Is this type of technology something potentially applicable here
as well, as a replacement to cdsls?

Could you tell us what you're trying to accomplish? I'm not sure I
understand with what functionality of CDSLs you're dissatisfied.
In OpenSSI, we generally keep the entire cluster's configuration on the
initnode's filesystems, which are transparently mounted clusterwide
through CFS (OpenSSI defaults to assuming diskless nodes). CDSLs are a
rather elegant, Unix-like way of adding node context to such an environment.
