What would be the practical reason for that as opposed to
allocating a bigger LV to contain all partitions?

If you had 3 partitions on one virtual disk, it's
easy to resize only the last one.

What about the first 2 partitions? If I upgrade the memory in the physical machine and then allocate more memory to a domU I might want to increase the swap space, its really easy to just extend the lv when its one partition per lv
