Even with data available it should be possible to find out why parted
responds with "unrecognised disk label" while "partition outside the disk"
error would be really expected.

The reported error is surely obscure and I think that chances that I run
into it again are practically nonexistent; although anaconda saying that
it cannot find any partitions on a working for a long time system was
definitely a surprise with no obvious way to fix it.

It sounds like you need the whole disk if somebody will run into the
issue again.  This is hardly feasible unless you manufacture yourself
something of that sort.  Writing provided initial two sectors on a big
enough blank disk, "fixing" resulting mess with a help of an fdisk and
trying what parted has to say appears as at least a way to try.  It does
not look that a loop device is sufficient for that.
