Something is unclear in "Solaris containers" and "Solaris ZFS" docs

Two extracts : "Consider
the following interactions when working with ZFS on a system with Solaris
zones installed:

A ZFS file system that is added to a non-global zone must have its
mountpoint property set to legacy.

A ZFS file system cannot serve as zone root because of issues with the
Solaris upgrade process. Do not include any system-related software that is
accessed by the patch or upgrade process in a ZFS file system that is
delegated to a non-global zone." "4. Set the zone
path, /export/home/my-zone in this procedure. zonecfg:my-zone> set
zonepath=/export/home/my-zone Do not place the zonepath on ZFS for this

I can't understand why the upgrade process need to have non-global root
zone on anything else than zfs.      Does the boot cdrom can't mount ZFS
volumes ?

The installation software does not yet understand ZFS, and is not able to upgrade a Solaris 10 system with a ZFS root file system. Further, it is not able to upgrade a Solaris 10 system with a non-global zone that has a ZFS file system as its zonepath.
