OK, that makes sense.  I can see now in the solaris.5 man page that I
can use either zoneadm "clone -c profile.xml" or "install -c
profile.xml" to apply the sysconfig profile data properly.

As an aside, it seems bogus to me that sysconfig requires the profile
file end in .xml.  Wouldn't it be better if it made sure the first
non-blank line in the profile file was:

<!DOCTYPE service_bundle SYSTEM "/usr/share/lib/xml/dtd/service_bundle.dtd.1">
