That's what I thought too. The question though is -- why not *let*
it work under explicit permission? Again, I understand the use case
why it shouldn't work. But why there's no acknoledgement of a usability
of a case where it makes sense.

Doesn't a glance at this thread provide enough of a conviction that
asking a global zone to route *all* FS related traffic is a useful
thing to do?

of long lasting impact would allowing such a thing have. And this is 
a conversation I'm very interested in having.
