Does this disk/filesystem layout look sane to you?

I bought a pair of identical WD 750G SATA drives the other day
and was surprised to discover that they were different sizes:
ad4: 715403MB <WDC WD7500AACS-00D6B1 01.01A01> at ata2-master SATA150
ad6: 715404MB <WDC WD7500AACS-00D6B1 01.01A01> at ata3-master SATA150
Luckily for me I built the file systems on ad4, and added ad6 to
the gmirror configuration. I suspect that it would have been
unhappy if I'd done it the other way around.
