AFAICT this is not in fact what I suggested... :/

My proposal did not have that invalid state. It would simply refuse to
change the type from thread to domain in the case where the parent is
not a domain.

Also, my proposal maintained the normal property inheritance rules. A
child cgroup's creation 'type' would be that of its parent and not
always be 'domain'.

Let me read more (and more careful) to see if there's other things.
