If not, I guess the next best thing would be running off the stick but then you are limited by the size of the stick.
I think you said that using the stick, the image will take about 1GB, so if using a 8GB stick, you would have 7GB left to use?
for the first releases we have no installer with ATV support. so there bill be an little howto to install manually. OpenELEC.tv for ATV is now around 85MB. but the ATV has only 256MB RAM included so we create an swapfile on first boot. The swapfile size will be 512MB. thats why 750MB minimum is recommended for the second partition (where the swapfile is) we need also some space for the XBMC Homefolder for creating database etc....
At this moment the first partition can be also 128MB, but we recommend a bit more space for further versions.
but in general you are right on an 8GB Stick you have a bit more then 7GB for your own use.
