ZFS Question

What's the difference between:

zpool create -m /desired_destination POOL_NAME disk_device


zpool create -m none POOL_NAME disk_device
zfs create -m /desired_destination POOL_NAME/foo

We would prefer the former, but see more uses of the latter.

The whole point is that we want to "keep things simple" and having only a single
mount-point makes things simpler, but I'm curious about any possible fallbacks
to using just the pool on the mount point with zero filesystems created

In other words... does "zfs create" actually buy us anything versus just using
the pool mounted on the desired location?
