Yes, we can say this is my main concern.

Not always it is a decision for the admin. In most cases, it is a
constraint of the problem. For containers - take lxc as an example,
the most reasonable thing to do is to grab all cgroups subsystems
available, and contain them.

No, it won't. Precisely because different subsystems have completely
independent pointer chains.
