umount(2) is not the only way for mount to detached from a mountpoint.
There's exit(2) as well - when the last process in a namespace exits, it
gets dissolved. What should happen upon those? Even more interesting question
is what should happen if you do such mount, then clone a process into a new
namespace and have it exit. Should _that_ rmdir the hell out of that
mountpoint (presumably detaching everything mounted on it in all namespaces)?

What should happen when a process in new namespace decides to unmount that
thing, because they don't what it visible. Should that take out the instance
in parent namespace? `
