It woudl be possible to add a new inherit-pkg-dir, but considering the

Personally if I install software in the global ( say a complier )and
want to make it available selectively to a non-global zone I would do an
add fs to the zonecfg and boot the zone, or if I wanted to avoid zone
reboot do the mounting manually and later add the fs to the zonecfg to
keep everything in sync.
I thought that the inherit-pkg-dir did more than just an lofs mount of
the underlying FS into the sparse zone.
Well yes, it not simply a mount operation, the package maintenance
needs to also occur etc as part of zoneadm install.
I'm just explaining that there are pitfalls involved in this proposal,
it's possibly doable ( the zones developers would be better placed to
comment ) but might be risky
