Unfortunately, the traditional df/du tools are not well-adapted to ZFS, 
to the point of being uninformative or even misleading in some cases. 
This seems unlikely to change, for historical reasons.

I think it's ultimately down to the sysadmin defining which metrics are 
important, and then using the native tools (zfs, zpool) to extract and 
summarize them in a meaningful way, possibly with shell aliases or 
wrappers.  ZFS just works differently, even though those differences can 
oftentimes be ignored in practice.
