In an ideal world, I would like just the thing - obviously, within
limits (things like ZFS snapshots and such are what makes ZFS - ZFS).
A good goal would be to make file systems indistinguishable to
non-administrative userland applications running on them.

Erm, exactly the thing that's supposed to be done, as described at:

"Currently ZFS on FreeBSD doesn't support ACLs. ZFS itself supports
NFSv4-style ACLs, which is different than the existing POSIX.1e
implementation in FreeBSD, which means that first thing to do is to
add support for NFSv4-style ACLs to FreeBSD, which is being done as a
GSoC project."

I'm not going to argue this point just for the sake of arguing - I
don't think I will convince you and I believe in my standpoint. Since
I'm not able to work on either file system, I'll leave it to the
people who will to decide
