In general i would agree with you, thats what LVM is for. But it is 
ugly, when i use LVM to combine 2 partitions on the same physical 
storage which lay directly together. If it where 2 physical disk i would 
do it without thinking about. But it is the same disk.

So it is nothing technical, it is that i just don't like this way.
Kind regards,
