I'm still lost as to what the whole point of this is.

I mean, Ubuntu Studio is targeted towards Audio, Video and Graphic
Professionals. And any professional who uses US for their work and takes
their work seriously is not going to run US from a live dvd/cd or any
live mode as a matter of fact. Why? Because the performance os a live
installation simply doesn't and will never compare to that of a raw
install running directly from a hard disk.
