Actually, we have people who were using Zun with Kata in before. Based on
what they reported [1], they were able to get Kata working with Zun.

Technically speaking, Zun is runtime agnostic, so any container runtime
(i.e. Kata, runc) should work properly with Zun as long as it can be
properly integrated with Docker Engine. If anyone tries Kata with Zun and
finds something wrong, please feel free to report a bug:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/zun .

I would definitely encourage Zun team to work closely with Kata team to
improve the integration between them.
