[sclug] Partitions on /dev/sdb

I've stuck a 500Gb RAID array on a machine under /dev/sdb.  I'm just
going to put data on it.  Is there any technical reason for me not to
just format and mount it as /dev/sdb?  Or should I create a big
partiton on it as /dev/sdb1 first?  The reason I ask is that it seems
to accept /dev/sdb as one big partition and I can apply /dev/sdb to my
mount point, it seems to work.  Am I going to run into a problem
