LVM is important and useful for managing storage. If, in the future, we have
ZFS-like features in btrfs or whatever, okay, we can talk about getting rid
of it. But a few-second gain in boot time is really, really, really not
worth it. And yeah, I mean the desktop/laptop case, not just servers. (In
fact, with suspend/hibernate working so well these days, I think I reboot my
servers more often than my laptop.)
