will result in undefined behaviors and unsupporable configurations.

we actually have a bug filed on this issue:
        567 ipkg zones verify callback should abort if it sees inherit-pkg-dir

the fix for this bug will verify that ipkg brand zone configurations
don't have any inherit-pkg-dir properties, and if they do the
configuration will be reported as invalid.
The labeled brand used by Trusted Extensions in opensolaris is still using the inherit-pkg-dir property, but this is described in bugzilla
  9191 labeled zones should no longer rely on sparse-root functionality

and a fix will soon be putback to the /dev repository for 2009.06.

Since the labeled brand shares much of its configuration with the ipkg brand, bugzilla 567 should be integrated after 9191.
