Plus it is very handy to have a /boot that is readable/mountable without LVM or MDRAID drivers loaded and configured.

/boot is only 256-512MB partition that is read only during boot and updated only when there is a new kernel, so it ain't no big thing. Even when RH goes to grub2 I think I'll keep this setup by default.
