I can't think of any good reason not to change mount(8), but I also think that mdmfs only needs to support the weird mount_mfs defaults when invoked with a name of "mount_mfs" or "mfs". People can call it mount_fish if they like and it will work fine, just with the mdmfs rather than mount_mfs defaults. The non-compatibility defaults are better defaults anyway, so they should probably be used in all cases except those that are necessary for compatibility with mount_mfs.
