Installer partition size defaults

For years now the default partition sizes during install have remained
pretty much the same.
While I normally change the partition sizes to my own specification I
decided to use the auto defaults in the installer for a test machine I
was putting together. (FreeBSD 8.0)
Once the system was installed I started a standard system update to 8.0
Stable. Partway through a make installworld I ran out of room on / (root).
In the age of the terrabyte drive, would it not be prudent to increase
the default partition size for at least / (root) in the installer in the
8.x tree if not for the 7.x tree as well?
Also, is there any intention to add a more simplified and direct way to
use zfs from the installer?
