I find that a spurious argument. The kernel autodetects physical partitions, so how is that different from detecting logical ones?
From the user's point of view he would want it to happen the
same way.  In fact, given the flexibility and [purported] negligible
overhead of logical volumes, he should not even be bothering
with physical partitions anymore.

it adds unneded complexyty to the kernel.
