Is there anywhere I can read about the design decisions over this? Why is inherited an issue when used in zones?
I am not completely sure why this test was coded this way. I would have to try to talk to the ZFS engineer who did the original work and see if he remembers why he coded it this way. Ideally this would be documented somewhere but it is probably too low-level to have been captured and there is no comment in the code explaining the reasoning. However, I can probably guess why it was coded this way. My guess would be that the idea for a delegated dataset is that you are giving up most of the control of the dataset from the global zone administrator to the non-global zone administrator. Only the quota control is retained in the global zone. So, if you have a data set that you have explicitly set up in the global zone to mount in a non-default way, then you should not be allowed to delegate that dataset to the non-global zone. This is my best guess for why the code does this test. I'll see if I can get a better answer to this question.
