I think the main reason would be simplicity, assuming you have
other volumes created and not just a single VG with a single
LV in it for swap.

Though I don't use LVM on the internal disks of my systems, have
had too many headaches over the years with anaconda puking during
installation with kickstart when using LVM. I only use LVM on
SAN volumes.
