I will talk with mpt about this one.

My argument is that ecryptfs still has its use-cases even with the full
disk encryption enabled, e.g. in multi-user/mutli-admin environment.

On the other hand, I do agree that ecryptfs is easy to enable/disable
post-install and that full-disk encryption covers more
encryption/privacy use cases.

  full-disk encryption should hide/de-emphasize encrypted homedirs

Status in “ubiquity” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  A customer has noted that in the quantal installer, if you choose
  full-disk encryption with LUKS you are then *also* offered the option
  to enable homedir encryption with ecryptfs.  The latter option should
  probably be de-emphasized when LUKS has been chosen.
