ok, perhaps we should add some clarifications...

That method will work ok.  Many people do this with various RAID
arrays.  We can't answer the question "is it the best way?" because we
would need more detailed information on what you are trying to
accomplish and how you want to make design trade-offs.  So for now,
I would say it works just like you would expect.

Zone limitations with ZFS should be well documented in the admin
guides.  Currently, the install and patch process is not ZFS aware, which
might cause you some difficulty with upgrading or patching.  There are
alternative methods to solve this problem, but you should be aware of the
current limitation.

Use Solaris 10 9/07.  It has more than a year's worth of improvements
and enhancements to Solaris.
