One more question... Where is it where I can decide on the image size?
Actually, for our deployments, we need to have a raw image. So the
conversion comes from 400M or so up to 24G !!!! That's a important
charge on the network for an OS deployment and, anyway, the disk should
grow to take the remaining space, isn't it ?

Yes, if you use type="oem" the image grows automatically.
Just write the decompressed .raw to a drive and it'll expand to fill the
disk on the first boot. So there's no need to specify a size manually.

This is the kiwi special initrd, or? To my knowledge, this does not
work with a read-only root filesystem. In this case, we normally use
the growfs functionality of cloud-init.

Nope, it's the normal initrd with just a kiwi-specific module enabled.
All it has to do is growing the btrfs partition mounted at /, so I don't see
any problems there. I never tried it on real hardware yet though.
