Thank you for your interest in NILFS.
How about making every checkpoint mountable ?
Does it differ from what you want?
It seems to be possible to enhance mount.nilfs2 and umount.nilfs2 to
allow changing given checkpoint to snapshot just before mounting, and
restoring the state on unmount. (This is not a polite way but
seems enough for most cases)
