That is not my experience, and I just tried it on build 12 (not 
GA version), and it did not create a ZFS snapshot nor a clone of 
that snapshot. This partial ZFS list shows the difference between 
S10 and Nevada. I just cloned a zone who's zonepath is in /zones. 
You will see an old clone done with NV 60 still in the pool.

zone2 is a clone of zone-shared
