I completely agree with you that containers are a form of virtualization. Docker however does not equal containers. Docker simply orchestrates the already existing Linux features and functionality to simplify creating containers. Docker is a orchestration, not virtualization, utility. This is clouded somewhat by the creation and subsequent usage of libcontainer, that replaces Docker's use of LXC utilities. But the fact remains that everything that Docker "does" can be done manually, outside of Docker.
