Why do you think this? Image jails work just as normal jails, only their
root directory is in a md-image based filesystem.

As with "normal" jails created by ezjail, those inside the container
also only contain a mountpoint for the shared world (/basejail) and a
set of soft links pointing to the respective directories under /basejail
Why not mount the nullfs on top of the mounted image as I was originally
IOW: This is what ezjail does.
