[linux-lvm] lvm metadata

I'm wondering why lvm metadata isn't stored directly into physical volumes. It 
would then be possible to read it without having acces to any filesystem. 
You may ask why. Then is my second question, why aren't vgscan and vgchange 
implemented in kernel and called at boot time ? This would make us be able to 
consider logical volumes as standard partitions and mount them easily, even 
as /

Thank you,
