Does all the new RAID MD support mean the standard LVM type of mirrors and

Current thinking:

Stripes remain as-is (they're very simple, it's not worth changing).

Preferred mirror switches to md, but existing mirror implementation
remains available and continues to be used for temporary mirrors like
pvmove.


IOW, md is "best practice" for mirroring?
