I proposed the original partition scheme as an introduction to how lvm works
without much complication, but if we are really that worried do one
partition, everything in LVM, grub2 can boot from LVM ;)

Archwiki can help you here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/GRUB2#LVM

I still recommend chainloading as this will resolve pretty much all your
problems and fears about mbr/config hungry distros. The only thing you would
have to check is the distro that does write to the mbr and make sure the
chainload entries don't get erased.
