I'd vote for making ,"sectorsize=512/4096" a artificial default.
I'm not entire sure about the different Windows versions, but since
BHYVE_UEFI.fd isn't able to access drives other than 512b sector size, I
think it doesn't make sense to provide 8k drives by default in case of
default ZFS volume.
If I remember correctly Win6.3 (8.1/Server2k12) did support 4k and 8k
native drives, with the limitation that "windows internal database -
mssql" might not be usable, but I couldn't UEFI boot unless I changed
sectrosize to 512 and stripezesize to 4k/8k.
I guess not may other operating systems support bigger sector sizes as
well as FreeBSD does today.
So this artifical format might be what most times makes most sense.
