[zfs-discuss] Hole Birth issues - how to avoid?

The issues with defects in the hole birth logic leading to corrupted
recv datasets got me thinking:

Is there currently a way to create new pools that won't suffer from
garbage filled holes when receiving datasets from them?
Will not enabling hole_birth on pool creation (while suffering the
penalty on the send/recv) guarantee 100% identical replicas?
