It has nothing to do with zfs. It has to do with how the kernel and 
modules are loaded at boot time, vs. after the disks are up. Please read 
the threads on -arch and the svn list before proceeding.

It's rc.d. It isn't "next generation" anymore.

Absolutely not. That would not fit into the way we do things at all, and 
would essentially require /etc/rc to do the processing, which is a huge 
step in the wrong direction.
