After reading this description, it struck me that this sounds kind of like a jail ... a multi-machine jail.

Or...if clusters are separated enough from the machines they're running on, could you perhaps turn it around and get jail functionality for free with a cluster defined on just one machine?

Or is that kind of thinking way off base of the vision? Either way, what you describe sounds terribly cool.
