In fact, perhaps we should keep the experimental tag on user namespaces.
If/when I/someone returns to heavy hacking on user namespaces, the
changes will be very invasive.  (Of course then we get back to questions
of the usefulness of experimental tag)

In particular, when we start refusing access for certain accesses between
user namespaces, it might confuse userspace.

Definately Ack to the other two.
