Well, in OOP is also one more approach called NullObject pattern,
which is create kind if partition table, that in represent no
partition table. Let me below show how it will behave. ( and yes, I
know it is a bit controversial pattern -
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Null_Object_pattern

so if NoPartitionTable is used and its partitions return single
partition, that is in fact filesystem on disk.

And when you ask that single "fake" partition for it's device
name, will it be "/dev/sda" or "/dev/sda1"? Any answer is looking
for trouble, e.g. with "/dev/sda" you have several objects with
the same device name (have fun finding the right one), with
"/dev/sda1" you cannot e.g. use the device name to mount the
filesystem.

Well, if idea is that disk act as partition, then for me naive answer
is /dev/sda as /dev/sda is disk and also partition with file system. So
is expected that name is unique identifier of object? Maybe it can be
object, that is both as it is for me idea of disk without partitions,
that it itself act as partition.
