OK, but I would be able to: a) import and mount the existing zfs pool in
the proxmox host, and b) make that available via nfs to virtual machines?
And thus c) when I mount the nfs share on the virtual machine, in the same
location, it will appear as if nothing's changed?

Well, partially it's an experiment, partially it's future-proofing,
learning, etc. And the server capacity is so far massively underused, so I
have ideas of what else I can do with the machine once it's virtualised!
