like i said, the switch from loop-aes to luks for both the persistent
partition and the rootfs from hasn't entirely happened yet in live-* 3.x.

if privacy is of no concern, then yes, it is entirely useless.

the right place to mention it is in the manpage of lb config where it is
already mentioned afaik.

live-boot is still very messy, however, look at scripts/live. patches

wrt/ rootfs encryption, no, as that would mean every user would need to
build it's own image (using a standard passphrase is obviously not useful :)
wrt/ persistent partition, even if we would have a nice way to ask the
user for the nitial passphrase when setting up the persistent partition,
it would not make sense to enable it by default. in the digital life,
the usage of cryptography has always to be at the users choice, ymmv.

for squeeze, we did take out all the userspace stuff from live-boots
initramfs stuff into normal user space (now live-config). the remaining
part is network configuration. as a first step, that network
configuration should be cleaned up and those parts that belong into user
space, should be moved into live-config.
then, the remaining initramfs only parts of live-boot (most prominently
scripts/live) should be rewriten according to
http://live.debian.net/devel/live-boot/todo. that's the goal for wheezy,
so we have a complete and sustainable live-boot package. any help with
that, regardless at which point you're starting with, is more than welcome.
