Unless you use a root filesystem on raidframe, which then introduces
another nested disklabel.

If on i386 NetBSD would use multiple DOS style partitions each with a
NetBSD disklabel inside it then perhaps raidframe could be allocated a
partition type to use for components?  (That doesn't help so much if
the disk is dedicated to NetBSD and not using DOS partitioning at all
... there are tradeoffs ...)
