openSUSE uses some kind of trick in a way, that LiveCD ISO can be
written to USB as raw image e.g. by dd tool (Image Writer can be used on
Windows machines). This is by far best and most flexible solution I'm
aware of.

Still I don't know how they do that and how much work would be
required to get this feature to Alpine Linux.
