That is technically impossible.  Nested containers exist.

That is when container G is nested in container F which is in turn
nested in container E which is in turn nested in container D which is in
turn nested in container C which is in turn nested in container B which
is nested in container A there is no one label you can put on audit
messages from container G which is the ``correct'' one.

Or are you proposing that something in container G have labels
A B C D E F G included on every audit message?   That introduces enough
complexity in generating and parsing the messages I wouldn't trust those
messages as the least bug in generation and parsing would be a security
issue.

What is the world is VPP?  It sounds like something non-public thing.
Certainly it has never been a part of the public container discussion
and as such it appears to be completely ridiculous to bring up in a
public discussion.
