Yes, I think this has been discussed quite some time ago on tech-kern.
When cleaning up the security related stuff and centralizing it in the
secmodel, there was no good way to pass such blatant layering violations
through to the secmodel via kauth.

Maybe, but I'm not sure about it, we should handle it in userland (i.e.
modify mount(8) to either print a helpful error message or to auto-add
the needed options.
