Which was exactly my complaint.  I don't do ufs create -m /opt.  Why
should I zfpool create -m /some/zfs/thing?  Is editing /etc/*fstab "so
1970s" that Sun has decided to (only partially) deprecate it?

My thesis is that someone needs a Really Good Argument for introducing
such a glaring inconsistency.  I don't see what 'zpool create -m
/wherever' buys other than obfuscation.
