if you put it in exports zfs cant manage it, therefore the zfs filesystem
set command becomes redundent and inoperative, so it doesnt fit in with zfs
standard way of doing things. Not really an issue but possibly a little

I know its not necessary the case for bsd yet, but on solaris if you have
made the jump to zfs, you have most likely gone for a pure zfs installation,
therefore it all hangs together nicely.
