Because one can.  That's why I used soft-raid, that's why I
use SMP... but I still have a non-lvm root/bootpartition.

Personally, I name my LVs to match their (usual) mountpoints,
because I do not want to remember the number/mountpoint
matching, so I have LV names like 

    /dev/main_vg/usr
    /dev/main_vg/var
    /dev/main_vg/var_spool_news         # mounts on /var/spool/news
etc.
