Well, users should be able to mount anything they desire and have access
to (which is the net, and probably some other devices if the nodes permit
it) to any mountpoint they own. It makes working easier for the users and
does not hurt, because users do not usually own mountpoints outside of
their homes.

One should always be able to mount any device, using only files on /.
