Yes, that's a wonderful suggestion, you should think that should work.
But unfortunately it does not. I tried it a few days ago. With tcpdump I
see some traffic coming from the guest's IP address when I create the
mount, but immediately it 'skips over' to the host's address. On the NFS
server it takes the export of the host's address unfortunately, just
like the other examples.
