The socket creator should be able to create a temporary (empty) directory, chroot there and delete the directory. As the socket creator should be the only component running with elevated privileges, it should increase the trust in its safety, even as chroot itself is not primarily security related feature.

This was discussed on the BIND 10 development list. It's not a bad idea, although see my warning about probably needing a double-chroot here:

On FreeBSD the double-chroot does not appear to be necessary, but it also does not seem to hurt.
