I'd say LVM fixed that inconvenience long ago, and the benefits of multiple filesystems are still there. I can't really understand why anyone would go with a single large root filesystem.

A privilege escalation flaw in udev

It can be tricky to get LVM aligned properly for LVM-atop-RAID, and if you
get it wrong you get a silent substantial slowdown...

(RAID-atop-LVM is not prone to this because you don't get the same excess
RMW cycles.)
