That makes sense. But it is misleading to have the mountpoint set to /usr
and /var, isn't it? In a zfs list, it looks as if it's being used for /usr
and /var, when really as you say it's a container.
I wonder - would there be a place I could submit a bug report to suggest
that the mountpoint property be inherited at the default rather than set for
these two filesystems?

Interesting. That looks quite nice. I need to read up a bit more on it,
clearly, since it seems to be more than just a zfs clone and zpool set
bootfs that I was expecting.
