Yes, /dev is unaffected. It's an API VFS, not a real file system, and
those won't be remounted r/o.

As long as you use only libraries and other resources from the root fs
you should be fine. But you shouldn't reference /var, /home, /srv or /usr/local 
such, if you want to remain compatible with generic systems.

"halt" just halts the system. It shouldn't result in power being
turned off. It will just make the system freeze eventually, that's all.
