LXC is still in a very early stage of development in the kernel itself, so
we're being cautious about telling people to use it in the real world. For
example, there is no user id / group id namespace separation between the 
host and container. This has some security implications in certain deployment
scenarios. I would say LXC is just starting to be useful for experimentation
& developer usage, but not yet production deployment.  We of course also 
need to improve the tools support like virt-manager, but also the tools
for creating chroot based environments of distros, since this deployment
model is very different from the kernel/initrd boot done with full machine
virtualization
