nfs_mount in AIX

It appears that the completely undocumented routine 'nfs_mount' can be
used by a non-root user to mount a daemon on a directory ala NFS. It
seems to me that this is a very nasty security hole.
I can't offer more details since, as I said, the routine is completely
undocumented, and the only working example I have is in a piece of
third-party software to which I do not have source.
I would appreciate it if someone could shed some light on this.
