This is better in a lot of ways because you're going to get a "truer"
system.  There are new things that don't get installed / set up on
upgrades and this is going to continue to be the case (the overhead to
set something like, for example, SELinux up on an upgrade is daunting).

Sure, the LVM1 volumes should be found in anaconda and you should just
be able to assign them mount points.  As far as conversion, anaconda
isn't going to do this, but '/sbin/lvm vgconvert' should be able to do
it.
