I think each zone's automounter is smart enough to use lofs instead

Please explain how this is possible. How can the automounter convert
an nfs specification of a global zone pathname into a pathname which
can be expressed using the non-global zone's lofs semantics?
It'd have to be a helper out in the global zone that sets up the
correct lofs mount.
You may remember that during the early days of the Trusted Extensions
project I tried to get the global zone automounter to act as such a
helper process. This was before the automounter used doors, and I
couldn't get the TLI code to work across zones reliably. There were
synchronization issues since the global zone automounter wasn't aware of
individual zone states.
Maybe a better helper program might be the zoneadmd process that is
associated with each zone.
