Remapping UIDs: ext only?

What I don't understand is why this would be a feature for ext filesystems only, rather than a
general VFS feature, applicable to any filesystems. I'd have certainly found it very useful for
NFS mounts in the past, since with NFS you often really have no control over the server-side
UIDs. (In my case, NFS-mounting a crappy NAS box which had some user UIDs conflicting
with standard Debian role accounts.)
