it's best not to adopt any style, but do whatever is optimal in certain
You propose just another example of "blind repeated rule".
Your idea won't hurt in single-disk, single-partition case, but this case
is prohibited by other "blind repeat" rule of making lots of partitions.
What if i want export things from multiple disks? just make one
another separete partition on each disk for /export/something just to
make system config look "nice" or "professional" because it's good to have
NFS exported things to stay in /export
Such practices gives only illusion or cleanliness and order, actually
giving exactly opposite.
Actually one ZFS adventage grown on this - it allows you to make millions
of "partitions" without actually creating them, because it's all still
stored in one pool. But those who feel configuration with a lots of
partitions "cleanness and order" are happy now.
I see this as just a pure mess, not an order.
