It seems reasonable to amend this case to say:

        Any process with priv_sys_resource running in the global zone's
        system project (project 0) will not subject to project.* or zone.*
        resource controls.  System daemons which wish to be subject to the
        global zone's resource controls can drop priv_sys_resource.

        The "user.root" project will be removed, and root's default project
        will be set to the "system" project via /etc/user_attr.

I'm not sure if (2) can be delivered via patch.  I need some guidance here.
I'm also not sure how implementable (1) is until I do more investigation.
