Why does link(2) not support hard-linking across bind mount points

Whenever we get mount -r --bind working properly (which I use to place
copies of necessary shared libraries inside chroot jails while allowing
page cache sharing), this feature would break security.

No, that would still function exactly as it does today.
The alternate behaviour that is desired for non-chroot purposes
would be per-bind-mount, and would require a mount flag to activate.
