It is a good argument but I have experienced the same issue before
(pre 11.10 so my errors are not directly relevant to you). I never use
a live CD any more, I do all of my installations as netinstalls and if
that's not available, alternative CD gives me the best option. At
least I can drop down to a console and have a look at the logs after
it's failed and change things here and there and expect to have my
config & log files still around after an update and reboot. At least
one version of Kubuntu Live CD did not blacklist my Via gfx card for
3D and would die horribly with the live CD
