'Should just Work' is not what i care in this question, so far debian installer
 works quite for me without any issue

Yes, i use dd or cp to create install media for formal case, because it's the
recommended way which tested quite well.

Actually the question could extend in several ways, such as

1. Could I install debian from chroot enviroment while i'm in another
linux dist
(such as CentOS, SUSE,  RHEL ...), or vice versa.
2. Could I boot A LiveCD without burn it to some media

These are not typically problems bother me, but something interesting
to play with,  LOL
