If memory serves me right, the loop-AES utils do not have support (yet)
for automatically setting up the LVM volume after the encrypted module has
been setup. In addition the loop-AES tools lack the initramfs integration
to do the work (in the initramfs) for setting up the root partition.
Therefore, lvm and/or root on LVM is disabled in partman-crypto since
you'd be left with an unbootable system.
For now, your alternatives are to use dm-crypt or to implement the missing
pieces in the loop-AES packages.
