I did that too.

I had other conversations with the people involved. It has been RFE'd
and turned down.

The raid 10 issue may be different. Jeremy thinks that the risk of people
getting confused with one element raid 1 arrays outweighs the benefit
to a few people wanting to use them. He may not feel so strongly against
loosening restrictions on raid 10 arrays. However, I don't care about
raid 10 enough to spend time agreeing to test whatever changes might
be made, nor do I know enough about raid 10 to make technical arguments
about what the limits should be. So I am not going to do it. If you
want to, you can discuss it with Jeremy.
