Run App from DMG?

Is it reasonable to have users run an app from a DMG volume on OS X, as
opposed to copying the app to their drive?
I have a colleague who wants to distribute an app in an easily launched
compressed format. On Windows one can create a self-expanding ZIP that,
when double-clicked, automatically decompresses and launches the contained
EXE. I'm wondering if a DMG file could serve the same purpose on OS X. I
assume the DMG volume is not writable, but I don't think it matters in this
case since the files are a bunch of media (Flash movies, PDF, etc).
Thanks for any advice here.
