If people eventually expect to be able to, say, migrate a container to
another host while using an nfs mount as their storage, then they'd need
the name to be that of the container, not of the host.

Obviously we'd also need to ensure the container got its own nfsv4
client state, etc., etc., and it sounds like we're far from that.
