Yes, but for what precise value of ``3TB''?
The ones I presently have are 5860533168 sectors. What if the replacement
I get in three years time have only 5860533160 sectors?

The normal way to handle this is to allocate slightly less than the full
capacity to the partition used as a RAID component.
