Hi,

How is this different from a normal NFS share that Proxmox already 
supports using? [1]

ZFS processing would happen on your shared storage NAS server where you 
are exporting the NFS share from. All Proxmox sees is an NFS share 
located on another machine, and remains ignorant to the specific 
filesystem underneath it.
