This is grossly oversimplyfied IMHO. While I wouldn't say that it is
factually wrong, it is sure to cause serious misunderstanding.

It's not only that Coyotos can support non-trivial confinement. The real
problem is that its whole design relies and is optimized for this
feature; which makes it effectively impossible to create any different
system on top of it...
