Why do people always want to bloat everything? LVM is one funcunality
and RAID a different one, you can layer tham as you please and get the
benefit of both with out any efford. So why should anyone integrate
them.

I know that the device mapper allows to add RAID5 functionality, but in
a different way (not as part of LVM, but as a plugin into DM)
