Correct.  Specifically, read-only bind mounts of (and to?) files that
reside on ZFS fail with EACCESS, which is normally “impossible.”

It would be great if you could ask the admins specifically what they did
in relation to user namespaces.

It’s code, so everything is possible :-), but like I wrote it’s a bit of
work, and it’s something that cannot happen (AFAIK) with file systems
that are part of Linux.
