I'm not sure if changing the name for just this reason is wise. df will 
wrap lines in a lot more cases than just this one, including in practice 
any LVM volume.
And you can always use 'df -P' if you really need the output to be on the 
same line (for parsing by a script for example).

As changing the name would for example break the rescue procedure I 
recently documented on [1] (the crypto device name used in the luksOpen 
command needs to match what is in /etc/crypttab to avoid e.g. 
update-initramfs to fail), I would not like to see the name changed
