We can.

Although personally I would rather get back to figuring out how
we can reduce the horrible time complexity of the worst case
for umount -l.

Can they create loops in mount propagation trees that we can not create
today? It feels like that would be very simple to do with an interface
like this.

A loop in a mount propagation tree would be an absolute disaster.

I remember Al Viro had some very firm ideas about bind mounts from
foreign namespaces. That I have never take the time to understand.
I suspect whatever objections he had will apply in this case. Or else
this code might be made unnecessary by allowing bind mounts between
mount namespaces.

Interesting. I personally think the checkpoint/restart use case
is more compelling.
