IMO it looks more or less good, except LILO. Grub handles raid as well, or
even much better.

I usually allocate a small 256 or 512MB partition for boot and make
dedicated raid for it (md0). Another raid (md1) is done for the LVM volume
(rest of the disk). In such a way the second RAID can be first encrypted
and then LVs can be created.

The process is more or less the same as in the howto
