[PVE-User] Proposal: Create ZFS pools with serial numbers instead of devices (sdX)

Dear Proxmox users and developers,
I wonder if it may be a good idea to create ZFS pools within Proxmox /
PBS with disk serial numbers (/dev/disk/by-id/...) instead of classic
devices (/dev/sdX) by default?

It seems that in case USB disks are plugged in, classic devices may
change their order, so that ZFS disks fail and pools become degraded?

Best Regards,
