Excellent observation! :)

Doing it this way or the other is a matter of preference. Some people like maintaining the size of the original component devices, and some like maintaining the number of the original component devices.

For the purposes of the article, showing how to end up with more devices seemed to serve as a better teaching example, as it tangentially demonstrates how to just plain add more disks. :)
