Besides being a Committed interface (which would require some
attention to compatibility), there are also scripts inside LU that are
dependent on that syntax, others in some management applications (such
as those used by TX)), as well as other externally-designed scripts
that use it.

I think that supporting the old syntax is a minimum requirement, which
(in addition to other problems) means you likely end up having have to
define what "zoneadm -z foo boot bar" actually means.
