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

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.
