I agree with you, having installed this one system following such advice
and having discovered also other problems.

Just yesterday I installed a ZFS system (using UEFI) straight from an
head snapshot and it did everything perfect, so I'm quite happy about
how things evolved.

What I was trying to express is that, just like me, other people could
get bitten by this change. Too me it's just an annoyance of shuffling
partitions around a little, but we should at least have a small warning
for the forthcoming release.
