Don't be so sure about that.  In a colo environment I /would/ want some
encryption on the disk, and if I have to use a remote kvm to input the
passphrase at reboot time, that's OK.  Reboots are either planned
events, or emergencies, both of which are going to require the attention
of the people who have the passphrase.
