Yes I chose the same passphrase for all three partitions.  This is the same
scheme I used for F9 but in F9 it asked me three separate times for the
passphrases despite them all being the same. I did not click on the first
one as a master passphrase though (as far as I remember!)

In F10 the screen halts soon after the "post" with a simple request for the
passphrase and then continues with the text simplified Plymouth blue and
white boot progress indicator - which although information-free does work
fast and well.

So I am happy with this.
