Since you implied a question...

This is a standard setup for Linux, so Linux people dealing with
problems with the root file system try and make it work in -stable
(with no luck). The best example would be to make /boot one file
system so you can get vinum loaded and running, then have everything
else on a vinum disk. This minimizes the set of things you don't have
on vinum.
