Yep. Straightforward machine partitioning. An attractive thing is that it
100% reuses existing page reclaim, unaltered.

umm, who said they were requirements?

We need to work out what the requirements are before we can settle on an
implementation.

Sigh. Who is running this show? Anyone?

You can actually do a form of overcommittment by allowing multiple
containers to share one or more of the zones. Whether that is sufficient
or suitable I don't know. That depends on the requirements, and we haven't
even discussed those, let alone agreed to them.
