For the ultimate in pure esthetics:

/dev/sd/c0b0t0d0s0

(but I think I'm repeating myself here :)

Honestly though - the h(ost) is fine the (u)nit is ok the (p)artition I
can live with, but I would recommend changing the c(hannel) to b(us)
If we are going to be different from Solaris (or SVr* as someone pointed out)
then let's at least not conflict with the other name scheme (ie
c(ontroller) vs c(hannel)) Would that be ok?

Switching from (h)ost (c)hannel to (c)ontroller (b)bus makes a great deal of
sense. It is also better for controllers which have multiple channels but do
not export them, such as a RAID controller that creates virtual disks from the
attache physical disks. I think the /dev/sd/c0b0t0d0s0 suggestion is the best
one yet.
