There is also the initial meaning of partitions: what the OS is allowed to access and what it shall not touch.
If I want two different Linux distribution (or two different versions) on the same disk I do not want to use two LVM versions to manage it.
Now if the distribution wants to use LVM on its own partition, there is no problem, but trying automagic there is risky.
