So, the constraint there are the controllers. A controller can't be
attached to two hierarchies at the same time for obvious reasons, so
regardless of NS, you can't use the same controller on a unified
hierarchy *and* a traditional hierarchy. NS doesn't adds or
substracts from the situation. If you decide to attach a controller
to a traditional hierarchy, that's where it's gonna be available. If
you attach it to the unified hierarchy, the same story.
