On the default hierarchy (with controller(s) enabled)? That sounds like a bug.

But threaded domains are important nevertheless.
I think that a structure like

app-cgroup cgroup.type=threaded domain cpuset.partition=root
`- rt cgroup.type=threaded cpuset.partition=isolated
`- normal cgroup.type=threaded

is a valid use case. Therefore I would not disallow partitioning inside
threaded subtrees (as suggested).
