Can you go into more depth on your comments on ZFS booting restrictions.  I know 
Solaris 10u8 thru 10u11 can boot off of a stand-alone or SAN disk with an rpool, 
and also a mirrored rpool.

But pretty much of that all went away with Solaris 11, allowing for booting thru 
ZFS under various RAID types.

Or, are you referring to ZFS booting on something other than Solaris?
