[linux-lvm] LVM2 and Software RAID

What information can you give on the reliability of using LVM2 w/ Software
RAID?  I've done some reading that stated that LVM and Software RAID on
Linux is not a good combination.  Especially b/c the combination does not
allow for adding or removing hard drives. Also, LVM does not allow for
mirroring capabilities so there is no way to mirror w/o the software RAID.
Finally, the combination does not support bad-block replacement mechanisms.
What can one do if a bad-block occurs in this type of setup?
