You can simply newfs the device itself, without a volume label, slice,
or partition.  That's the normal thing to do with malloc devices, or
additional disks.  If the disk doesn't require a boot loader, isn't
the root device, etc. that may be the best thing to do.

Your caution about EXT* is spot-in - adequate tools exist for EXT2FS,
but it's still problematic.
