Okay, but in that case presumably you would not be mapping the mesh back
to a reference ordering, but instead pushing the boundary indices
forward to their new owners.

I think it's clear that something like this is needed, so the next step
is to define an interface.  I'd rather not make the concept a mandatory
part of DM.
