It's the BSD model, as far as I understood. In particular, there can be
separate quotas on the same device: per user and per group. If we can only
signal one of these quota, the server would have to choose between

- hiding one (making the one that was reported inaccurate) or
- computing a summary that describes both quotas (how do you do that?)
