He's not getting working filesystem redundancy with the existing  
config and is vulnerable to losing data from a single drive failure,  
agreed.  But the ZFS checksum mechanism should still be working to  
detect data corruption, even though ZFS cannot recover the corrupted  
data the way it otherwise would if redundancy was available.
