I've followed the related discussion, but I'm not sure what
to conclude from it... as far as I understood, creating an
installation "dangerously dedicated" mode isn't possible
from sysinstall anymore, but still possible via the command
line tools. I don't see a reason why it is considered to be
something bad, but the inclusion of a "carrier slice" for
the OS's partitions has always been recommended. But for
data disks where only one partition is intended, why create
it inside a slice?

By the way, the OP intends to create more than one slice
and then create one or two partitions within each slice,
so "dangerously dedicated" disks wouldn't be a solution
for him anyway.
