`guix system vm` creates an immutable system that shares the host's
store. The annoying LSH host key issue will be the first problem if you
want to write to the filesystem. Since it lives in the store, you can't
mutate it. I think that parts of the filesystem are mutable RAM-backed

`guix system vm-image` creates a system with its own store that is meant
to be copied out of /gnu/store and mutated. It requires some manual
steps, as you pointed out.

I don't know the implementation details of these tools very well, but
that's my understanding based on using the tools.
