I agree that it's broken in the sense that it doesn't work as
documented.  But having this work really doesn't give you any
finer-grained control, just a false sense of security.

I would guess that your setup works because all your options are
consistent across your exported directories.  In the original post
there were some with "-maproot=root" and some with "-maproot=nobody".
That's probably what caused the lossage.
