I really recommend using the fewest partitions possible, since md RAID operates on partitions (Anaconda won't create full disk md RAID volumes), and replacing a disk will require you to handle each partition individually. It's probably best to do a small /boot on RAID1 and use the rest of the disk for a second RAID1 volume, with LVM on that.

There's no corruption. If a write is canceled before it completes, you might end up with a block mis-match (or might have, I'm not sure if that still happens), but no corruption. The mis-match is on a block that isn't mapped to anything, and will never be read by anything other than a RAID verify. It's ugly because it means the verify operation is no longer useful, but it won't cause any read from the RAID volume to return bad data.
