Notice that you could also create the filesystem on the whole disk, no

You can, but IMHO it is a bad decision to do so. It exposes you to
several more ways you can shoot yourself in the foot, and can confuse
anybody else who looks at the disk (of course, that might be a bonus in
some circumstances).

That's right, but it makes it really easy to resize (at least,
increase size of) your filesystem when it is on external storage array
LUN. Just grow a LUN and resize filesystem. Changing partition size is
rather more involving (not sure if it can be done online at all).
