(And I don't think it has to be a rpciod thread, it could just as
well be a "per-mount-TCP-thread" - threads are certainly low-cost
enough that it might make sense to have one per mount).

Please no. Using the existing framework, in terms of the rpciod
thread, is the best choice if it can be done. If we make new threads
to implement this, we open up a new can of worms. I consider this a
2.3.x thing to even think about.
