This is an interesting question because I have seen permitted sunrooms that were definitely habitable space and all glass.  That was a couple of code cycles back but even then it would have been very difficult to accomplish.  I remember wondering what the R/U value of the glass must have been to achieve compliance.  Be a lot easier to see it working if it could have a roof with insulation.

Patti has a good point on the livability issue, sunrooms can be like big solar dehydrators……
