If my machines crash often enough that I am regularly juggling disks
I consider this a problem beyond the scope of LVM (unless they're
crashing in LVM).

Anytime I *have* had to move LVM setups to other machines I have had
no issues.

I'm confused why you continually compare LVM to various filesystems
when it isn't a filesystem.  It has different challenges and use
cases.

If you could go into more detail regarding incidents where you have
lost data on otherwise working disks then perhaps you could get more
help.
