Now if venus was just handling upcalls coming in on /dev/cfs0, and mount
was the normal mount(8) command called as a result of an /etc/fstab
entry, would you see it as bletcherous?

Just view at the process handling the mount operation as something
different than venus handling the upcalls. The only reason venus
triggers the mount operation is because it is the only process that
knows when it is listening and ready for upcalls.
