I think it's all about kernel space.

Moving the default parsing to user space would add exactly _zero_ advantage, and would add totally unnecessary complexity (ie now we need to make sure that hotplug does it right - and the hotplug routines suddenly change between the boot phase and the actual install).

With LVM (default RHEL and Fedora installs encourage you in that direction) and EVMS (device mapper), these issues already exist.

Today's default install has "partition" parsing in both the kernel and userspace... talk about complexity :)
