Is offering the menu item really worth the increase in space for the

Having LVM documented in the NetBSD Guide could go as a nice alternative
for this (Have a chapter "How to install a system with LVM enabled" in
the Guide, and the reference this in the install docs).

imo, if we're going to offer a feature and have any desire for it to be
widely used it should be obviously present in the "normal" way of installing
a system.
You seem to be arguing *against* making the use of lvm user friendly.  Am
I interpreting you correctly?

No, I agree with you.
