Let me try to clarify (if I wasn't clear), the extra level would be just an
organizational convenience, not something required for this to work.
Without ROOT, the zone BE root datasets would have zfs properties
and such to delineate them from random datasets that a zone admin could
have created under <zonepath>/rpool.
Yes, the zone admin could still create random datasets directly under the
ROOT because we have nothing stopping them to, but it's documented to
be a special dataset that they shouldn't play around with.
