disks over 2TB in size

Just wondering if it has been considered to not auto select dos for the disk if the disk is detected to be over 2TB? GPT works but it'd be nice to have it just work automatically?

It defaults to MBR because that works for most people. There is no detection at all at that stage. Besides that, it actually asks what you want. If you want GPT, select GPT.
Well if you have a 4tb disk but leave it at the default of dos, you end up with 2 tb of usable disk space; if you select gpt you can actually use the whole thing.
