Or is that in sectors?
So 32768 would actually be 16MiB (assuming 512 bytes/sector)?
The Kickstart manual isn't clear on that.

P.S.  Am I correct in assuming that the 65534 number of extents limit
per logical volume (LV) is a 32-bit limitation?  Or it is absolute
(64-bit too)?

You already know Red Hat as the entity dedicated to 100%
no-IP-strings-attached, community software development.
But do you know where CIOs rate Red Hat versus other
software and services firms for their own, direct needs? 
It's no comparison:  http://www.redhat.com/promo/vendor/
