So why does the installer completely ignore it and choose instead to do this:

  --- Logical volume ---
  LV Name                /dev/vg0/root
  VG Name                vg0
  LV UUID                Y8CeAF-SzBy-A3V3-Wvhw-UB0r-r1oE-8sTTuc
  LV Write Access        read/write
  LV Status              available
  # open                 1
