[OpenAFS] dynroot and localcell

First off, am I blind, or is there almost no documentation on dynroot? The 
afsd manpage doesn't even admit that the option exists. All I could find is 
a very short mention of its existence on one slide of an openafs 
presentation and one thread in the mailing list archives. Of course the 
WiKi is down right now, so perhaps there's stuff hiding there.

Secondly, is it intentional that localcell/.localcell are missing when 
using dynroot? This lack makes the feature useless from my point of view, 
as we really need to be able to symlink/automount to the same path 
globally. I'd really like the machines to not hang at boot if the network 
is b0rked...

If it matters, this is using 1.4.0 on RHEL4U2.
