It looks like you're looking at old stuff. My current HOWTO has no section
2.3 and doesn't advocate copying your host root filesystem.

Same here. I fixed this a while back. Now, if you boot up a readonly root,
you get this:
fsck.ext2: Read-only file system while trying to open /dev/ubd/0
Disk write-protected; use the -n option to do a read-only
check of the device.
fsck failed. Please repair manually and reboot. Please note
that the root file system is currently mounted read-only. To
remount it read-write:
# mount -n -o remount,rw /
CONTROL-D will exit from this shell and REBOOT the system.
Give root password for maintenance
(or type Control-D for normal startup):
which seems entirely reasonable to me.
