One thing that was not clear to me is what vendors the "vendor specific" metadata of MD refers to. Probably not Linux distribution vendors.
What would be interested is if someone with a knowledge of GEOM could highlight some of the differences and similarities of that scheme. It is the latecomer of the bunch and is now used all over the place in FreeBSD, at least until ZFS came and shook up block device management again.
