Yep agreed and even if it turned off by default, this is very interesting that Capsicum is integrated into the kernel: it is the first time that a widely available OS provides capabilities http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capability-based_security

Note that this feature is different from POSIX capabilities and for example allow Chrome developers to implement their sandbox much more simply.
Simplicity is good for security..
