Yes. We need to solve this problem correctly, and that has a fair
number of issues involved.
I am not going to rush in a band-aid for 5.3, the risk of breaking
something is far larger than the inconvenience of not being able
to use a number of new geom classes for root filesystems.
When we have the correct solution, it can be MT5'ed and future 5.x
releases will have it.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
