Not exactly, you need enough spare memory and/or swap space, because
they get installed into 'memory'.

Most people couldn't as they'd run out of RAM.

The fact that the organizers specified an installed system was required
is the reason I didn't bother spinning live images for this test day, it
seemed pointless given that fact.

We do still spin test day live images when they are useful/required. For
some events, though, we just link to the latest nightly live image, when
there's no need for any customization for the test day.
