	Not so clear, if you are using a mixture of filesystems you may
very sensibly opt to keep all your export controls in one place, similarly
if you have servers running multiple OSs then not having to remember that
the FreeBSD/ZFS box manages it's exports differently to the Linux/ext2fs
may well be a benefit. You may have management tools and not wish to extend
them to handle ZFS explicitly.

	There can be good reasons both ways.
