from how I read the change, then yes, the container could start another bluetoothd or btmon. As long as you use an user namespace and gain CAP_NET_ADMIN and CAP_NET_RAW privileges.

I am actually not convinced we really want this. More useful seems the fact to create a virtual child hciX controller that then can be moved into container. It would use the parent hciX controller as real hardware. However this most likely only works for BLE since with BR/EDR this is rather complicated and there are actual role limits.

Regards

Marcel
