And I was just about to ask what exactly is broken downstream... :-) I've been 
driving several Fedora versions on several machines for several years now with 
a custom-partitioned disks (simple setups, typically just swap, / and /home, 
no LVM or anything such), and nothing "downstream" seemed broken, ever.

AFAICS, it is completely safe to not use LVM if you know you won't be resizing 
partitions afterwards. And life is simpler if the hard drive starts dying or 
something... ;-)

Best, :-)
