Mind you it's quite rare to run binaries over NFS these days.
I don't agree with that opinion. A common use of NFS is to provide netwide home directories. If a user installs any program privately, or if she develops programs, executables will be run from this NFS share. And IMNSHO this scenario is not "quite rare".

I was thinking that it's rare compared to the number of programs installed
in /usr/bin: but then if the user's compiled a program herself she's a lot
more likely to run it than a given random binary in /usr/bin...

...in which case a "default per-mount permitted capabilities" sounds useful.
