I'm not too keen to have it on by default, but if you're going to then 1
share each makes sense. Or perhaps something like 10 shares each making
it simple to sneak in a low priority zone without having to edit all

Sounds fairly reasonable and as something where people won't often hit
the limit - in fact I'd almost be tempted to go lower and small

Wouldn't this lead to a waste of resources on systems with only one
non-global zone? It may not be the most common setup, but still makes a
lot of sense for a higher level of security.
