I just don't get why it's there. Maybe, there can be some remote use
cases where orthogonal hierarchies can be useful but structuring whole
cgroup around that seems really extreme.

The only question is whether we want to allow cgroup hierarchy to be
completely orthogonal from process tree structure, which I don't think
is a good idea. It shouldn't affect trivial use cases. If not
explicitly configured, all tasks would live in a single root cgroup -
much like every process would belong to the same session if nobody
does setsid() since boot (or container).

I don't know how the implementation would turn out and it may as well
stay separate as it is now but I still think the topology should match
pstree.

Thanks.
