Would of course be doable and would also not be too complicated to implement.

Nevertheless it would cause potentially more password popups than currently:

Current state:
- User is prompted for a password if and only if he explicitely manipulates
(format or setup) a encrypted volume. This is what is to be expected and
nobody should be surprised. Disadvantag: since without the password we c
annot know about the content of the volume, we have to accept less comfort
in some areas.

Your suggested change:
- User is prompted for a password whenever yast2 finds a volume containing a
LUKS signature that has no accompanying crypt dm table. This is unexpected.
Maybe the user simply wants to do something that does not involve
of any encrypted volume at all. I do not think this is really much better
than the current state.
