I guess the doc is referring to sparse root zones mostly when lofs
filesystems are mounted RO so you won't be able to restore them within
a zone anyway. Then you would backup same data many times when having
multiple zones.

Another issue could be that you coul dendup restoring /usr /lib etc.
in global zone which might render your system unusable.
