Well, as I understand it, the point of zones is to delegate and reduce 
power of root access.  For instance, running insecure or 
software packages far removed from other services, or hosting with each
user getting root.

OTOH, a) running the OpenAFS server shouldn't be impacted (as I 
understand it,
this is strictly client-side), and b) I wouldn't be totally optimistic 
running the AFS client kernel module in the non-global zone anyway.

That does bring to mind something else, is the PAG namespace global 
user-mode linux instances?
