The problem here is that the number of partitions per slice is
extremely limited in FreeBSD. There was a discussion a while ago
[sorry, I've lost the reference] to bump the number of partitions
to 16 or even 32, but AFAIK, this has not been implemented (is it
still so?). One of OpenBSD or NetBSD supports this, but not FreeBSD :(
Perhaps in the upcoming 5.3-RELEASE?

And no, vinum is not the solution so early in the boot process.
