If this is true, I agree with Scott that it should be addressed.  I've always 
simply assumed that the defaultness of LVM, EVMS, MDADM etc. were to ensure 
the widest possible support for various HDD configurations like RAID.  If 
it's not true, and we're just lacking support for an unusual one-off 
configuration, of course please file a bug report.
