But critical vs non-critical is just a question of ordering at boot.
Do you have rc.d scripts that have to run some time between
mountcritremote and mountall, for which it matters to defer mounting
some file systems until mountall?  If yes, why?

(Separately, there's `noauto' in fstab if you don't want the file
system to be mounted automatically at boot.)
