(to > stay with the example) I don't really understand snapshots, but given that it's supposed to be a copy of a f filesystem, it doesn't make sense (from a user expectations viewpoint) that filesystems mounted within the snapshotted fileysstems be cloned at all. I'd expect to see the mounted-on dir (empty or not) in the snapshot.
