But aren't both of the above get weird when the parent can host both
domain and threaded children?


If you create another child B under R, it's naturally gonna be a
domain. Let's say you turn that to threaded.

A(D) B(T)

And now try to create another child C, should that be a domain or

If we only inherit from the second level on, which is in itself
already confusing, that still leads to invalid configs for non-root
thread roots.

I don't think whether we fail the transition or put the cgroup in an
invalid state is all that material. The simpler the better.
