This gets confused some as diskutil will accept either for some verbs. For
example when making a RAID I can use a disk identifier like disk1s4 or
just call the volume name /Volumes/foo.

It's probably just diskutil trying to convert the logical path to a
physical device. I would always call the device to prevent confusion.
Remember that disk numbers are dynamic on Mac OS X though. :)
