As I said, however, I'm having the same problem with UFS...
You are focusing on ZFS, but this was not the point of the original
post; it was just an example.

Sometimes you have complex system, with several machines (some with ZFS,
some with UFS, some with a mix and some not even BSD) and you need an
Handling ZFS filesystem differently from the others would be a pain.
Besides, restoring a whole filesystem if you just need a couple of files
would be very inefficient.
