Yes it will. But isn't it a *separate mode* worth having? If I, as a global zone admin, decide to make all of NFS traffic go through the global zone, shouldn't I be allowed to? In fact, don't we sort of have it already with nfs_global_client_only tweak? What is the reason for not making it one of the official ways to configure how zones interact with NFS? Once again, this is not to say, that a total separation of NFS identities is not needed.
