Nothing's necessary of course, but the best idea is to offer people
choices and then they can choose what's best for their own particular

e.g. someone's encrypted data could be in a separate VG, activated
manually after booting by inserting a read-only floppy/CD containing
the VG metadata (optionally also containing the encryption key) - and
removing that disk after activation.
