I did mention (albeit briefly) my thoughts on this in the git commit

There's a spectrum of privileged containers.  As I mentioned in the
commit log, a critical aspect to capture is the host versioning
information - we don't want the container's rpmdb.

Now when talking about sosreport too, it's basically a collection of
plugins.  Some of these would only make sense containers (e.g. the
tomcat plugin), but the storage ones all really need to look directly at
the host.

What I think will happen over time is the Atomic Host will slowly grow a
bit like this proposal, but simultaneously we'll get better at defining
privileged containers and having patterns available for tools to operate
on, and more software that traditionally ran on the host will be
rewritten to take advantage of it.  Then we can get back to shrinking
the host a bit.  Other opinions?
