The only constraint is that you couldn't boot from a kernel on a root
cgd - the boot blocks wouldn't be able to read it. Your "Better" boot
from unencrypted CD is then a good option. (I'd start with a bootable
USB stick until it worked ;-) )  cgd over raid definitely works.
I don't think this is written up anywhere but feel free to ask
questions as you go along!
