[OpenAFS] changing underlying filesystem?

Just thinking aloud here, but does this make any sense, or am I totally off
my rocker?  From what I can glean from the docs, it appears that AFS uses
the underlying filesystem on partitions (/vicepxx slices); that is, UFS
on Solaris, XFS on SGI, whatever AIX uses on AIX and then stores metadata
about acls and volumes.  If that is the case, how difficult would it be
for Solaris users to use ZFS as the underlying filesystem rather than
UFS (once ZFS is available externally)?
