Most dedicated server providers can't afford to use hardware RAID

Yes, it would be cleaner to implement but it would also make the
mirrored devices unbootable.
But maybe the class of users needing the functionality is smaller now.
This might be dangerous in some cases. Imagine booting with two drives
swapped; such a configuration might lead to data corruption on a volume
which was enumerated incorrectly or swapped.
Looks too complicated and fragile. Maybe there's a need for
metadata-less automatic mirrors in some way, by storing the
configuration somewhere else, possibly in /etc.
