But if the daemon process does not have enough information to know that 
this is needed, how will it know to tell its child process to do that? 
If you only send "commands" to the daemon, it has no idea when to enter 
a chroot, when to chuser, how long a "cleared" environment should last, 
etc. If you actually _send_ it chroot commands, then you have taken 
control away from the daemon process, and you might as well just open an 
ssh session and pipe down bash commands to it.
