You'll find that you get errors as various programs try to change
permissions on files in /dev.  Various other things may arbitrarily
fail.  So, no, you can't mount / read only *without* trouble.  That's
not to say it's completely impossible.

This is something that various people have attempted in the past with
varying degrees of success.  I'm sure Google will turn up all manner
of interesting accounts of what they did.
