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.
Most dedicated server providers can't afford to use hardware RAID systems because that would drastically increase the price of a single system; yet many customers want mirroring.
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.
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.
