I have found zones useful.

I have customers that have 300+ days of uptime with Solaris 10 (would 
be more but I moved my customers to a Level3 datacenter about 300 days 
ago) with 30 or more active zones on the server.  A few shell scripts 
can make all the bad stuff that is started automatically with svcadm go 

That said, Solaris 9 was also a pretty decent release; so if you don't 
use zones, I can see how useful that is.
