Yes, but even if it knew it should use lofs, there is no way it can express this using current semantics.

And new semantics to allow that would have one twist: you really only want to allow this zone-requested loopback when the filesystem to mount is share(1M)'d to the zone. You can't allow zones to have arbitrary loopback mounts created upon request. So this might need support for share -F lofs and corresponding support to (auto)mount global zone lofs exports in local zones.
