Assume you are in the IT dept for some group and you are used
to being able to re-use disks in different machines and to
recover data from any disk by installing/mounting in any working
machine.  Now you find that any combination of disks from
default fedora/RH/Centos installs won't boot...  It is a
problem.

So you boot with a LiveCD or some Rescue disk/media and fix it - use
the device ID or relabel it. Isn't that the way to fix it? I don't
understand the problem. Your assumed scenario is too vague.
