I have many other VM's that run different things, like one for poudriere build server, puppetmaster, upnp media server, transmission server, mail, plus the storage that serves them (and physical clients) with NFS, SMB, AFP, iSCSI, and I really wanted to better define what resource was malfunctioning, in case something was wrong. More like the UNIX philosophy "do one thing and do it well". For the DC it was mostly because I already tried it on ZFS, felt that the provision was a little bit trickier and wanted to deploy it on dumb-old UFS instead (it´s all stored on ZFS anyway), and had no problems with it.
Then again, I´ve also added layers of complexity to it, so net sum is probably the same in the end
