How about a third way:

- make "newinstance" mandatory (and "-o newinstance" is a no-op) and
forget about the whole issue.

- if you really want to remount the old global one, you have to use a
bind mount of that original mount instead.

There may be some subtle reason why the above is totally broken and
just fundamnetally wouldn't work, and breaks all existing setups, but
maybe it's worth at least discussing as an option?

Or did I entirely misunderstand the problem?
