I assume this requires a pre-boot password, right?  Then I have two

I noticed in solaris 11, when you "init 6" it doesn't reboot the way other
OSes reboot.  So maybe "init 6" will not need you to type in a password
again?  Maybe you just need a passsword one time when you power on?

If you have to enter password at every reboot, of course, it lends some bias
toward using that encryption solution only for laptops, where there's
guaranteed to be a user present.  It's not quite mutually exclusive with
servers, but a strong bias away from being used on servers.
