> So you can give someone root in one container and that doesn't allow him/her any access in another container or in the host system (barring bugs, of course.)

You can't give root to A in a container and access to the filesystem from the main system as any user. Simply make a suid executable in the container and execute from the main system. Unless uids are jailed as well (and appear on disk as some offset from "root" permissions).

Containers handle UIDs, yes; root in a container does not necessarily correspond to root in the parent container.
