To me, it seems like "inside the box" storage configation and "export
methods and permissions" are conceptually separate. I think for the NAS
idea, this could be fairly opinionated (allowing us, among other
things, to get SELinux right). One half would be "Configure storage
however you want to get a volume mounted at /srv/fedora-nas" (Or
whatever we select), and the other half would be "export subdirectories
of /srv/fedora-nas via your choice of tech".

I think we _should_ isolate just that point. Samba installed for the
Fedora Server NAS role should _only_ do that. You want some other
functionality or configuration, run a different Samba.
