This problem can be recreated with snap7. /boot cannot be created on a lvm partition.

till today I thought that s390 was the only arch. that had this restricted, but it seems that in other archs. was also restricted due to grub, correct?
In any case, I do not think that it is necessary to do more checks that you do now (were there any checks till now to know at partitioner time if the zipl was going to be succesfull at the end, with something like zipl --dry-run ?), that is now that zipl support device mapper, it will support to have /boot on LVM, assuming that the installer allows it. That helper script is used by zipl, but the user and/or anaconda does not need to use it.
As for the fix to allow /boot on LVM, you know much better anaconda code than I do, but maybe I would suggest looking under:
def checkBootRequest(self, req):
# can't have bootable partition on LV
if req.type == "lvmlv":
errors.append(_("Bootable partitions cannot be on a logical volume."))
and maybe add "and !s390" with proper sintax.
Regarding RHEL 6.0 or 6.1 is your call to decide if you consider that too risky now or not, and if it does not go in to RHEL 6.0 we will request it for 6.1.
Hope it helps,

Hello Red Hat,
While a fix for this is in work for RHEL6.1,
this issue should have a short entry in RHEL6 release notes
Proposal for R6 release notes - until fix avail. with R6.1
The /boot partition cannot be created and mounted on an LVM logical volume.
The Linux system cannot be booted or IPLed from an LVM logical volume.
Create the /boot partition on a DASD or SCSI volume.
n/a (same as result)
