Regarding your item #2, I do that every time I go to install FreeBSD. 
Although, I have noticed that the posted suggested partitions don't match 
very well with what my current FreeBSD server actually uses (for example, my 
/var partition is taking MUCH more than the recommended space). I wonder if 
that section specifically needs updated to reflect minimum as well as larger 
system setups.
