Actually, having the automounted home like that under autofs was a
typical way of operating with Solaris systems even before ZFS (and,
indeed with AMD) with /home possibly assembled from various different
fileservers.  I'm going to be dealing with a ZFS setup shortly, and am
expecting to set the automounting period arbitrary long -- I don't know
if you can actually turn off the umounts with autofs.
