I realize that sysinstall isn't directly relevant to you and I,
but it's important to just about everyone who installs FreeBSD for
the first time, and this is group we don't want to piss off.
Until we have something better, it's inappropriate to write it off
as broken and ignore it.

For the author of GEOM, the breakage should be easy to fix.  Why
not just fix it in the same way that you fixed fdisk over two
years ago?
