Rich version of this review at:

S 4.
>      It is worth emphasizing that the nodes specified in
>      "parent-reference" leaf-list are available in the mounted schema only
>      for XPath evaluations.  In particular, they cannot be accessed there
>      via network management protocols such as NETCONF [RFC6241] or
>      RESTCONF [RFC8040].

What are the security implications of this XPath reference outside the
mount jail? Specifically, how does it interact with the access control
for the enclosing module.
