You are correct and it is absolutely a Good Thing for reasons other than the
situation you brought up. If an NFS-mounted filesystem could be reexported,
the original server (where the fs physically resides) would lose the ability
to restrict which clients could mount it.
Linux will do for applications what the Internet did for networks.
