the problem is that ANY alias is a dirty workaround

ssh root at host "df" does ignore aliases
and YES this is very useful if you have a central admin-server
and distribute commandos over the whole infrastructure

W HY are such changes introduced without any care about the
negative impact over years?!

you missunderstood me

that all mount are in the output is OK
BUT all the years there was a hint taht it is a bind-mount
since systemd/F15 there is no difference
