In fact, given that FreeBSD doesn't seem to have a native convention on
how exported filesystems are laid out (no mention in hier(7), no default
/etc/exports file), it would make sense to adopt the Solaris/Linux style where

it's best not to adopt any style, but do whatever is optimal in certain case.

You propose just another example of "blind repeated rule".

Your idea won't hurt in single-disk, single-partition case, but this case is prohibited by other "blind repeat" rule of making lots of partitions.

What if i want export things from multiple disks? just make one another separete partition on each disk for /export/something just to make system config look "nice" or "professional" because it's good to have NFS exported things to stay in /export

Such practices gives only illusion or cleanliness and order, actually giving exactly opposite.

Actually one ZFS adventage grown on this - it allows you to make millions of "partitions" without actually creating them, because it's all still stored in one pool. But those who feel configuration with a lots of partitions "cleanness and order" are happy now.

I see this as just a pure mess, not an order.
