Isn’t restricting resource use very difficult in practice due to the
fact that servers allocate resources on behalf of clients?  (As noted in
the “Critique”.)

For instance a process within a “cgroup” could use the io interface of a
server outside the “cgroup” and cause that server to spend lots of
memory and CPU time serving those requests.
