well, on the contrary, adding the entry to /etc/mtab would
result in rather confusing situations, as, for the host,
the mount does not exist at all ...

it might make sense to add the entry to the guest's mtab
and you can do that if you like, but /etc/mtab can contain
any kind of wrong/useless information, the only relevant
information is in /proc/mounts
