Yes, possibly.

The way to do it is you partition your disk as normal, and mark the
partition as a RAID volume. Then, after completing partitioning, you
configure RAID, creating your RAID device. You then create a filesystem on
it, or use it as a physical volume for LVM. If you do the latter, you then
create your VG(s) from the PV, and then create LV(s) from your VG(s) and
then create filesystems on your LV(s).

Possibly. I haven't put a lot of thought into it at the moment, I was more
concerned about setting you straight on how it should be done. Clearly, if
partman's allowing you do stuff that is Plain Wrong (tm) it's a deficiency
in the interface if not a bug.
Hope this helps.
