Yes, definitely.  Labelling your partitions will make your life somewhat
easier.  The /dev/gptid names could be used -- it always produces the
same device name for the same physical drive -- but it's so long it is
pretty unweildy to deal with.

Hmm... yes.  I think the /dev/adN style device names were dropped in
11.0-RELEASE, so what used to be ad6 is now probably only showing up as ada1
