What is the best practice?  LVM on LUKS or LUKS on LVM?

I guess putting LUKS on top gives you the option of having some
volumes unencrypted and others encrypted.  However, I'd think it would
be simpler to put LUKS on the bottom and it just seems like the
encryption should be closer to the physical layer.  You would also
have more flexibility around what physical volumes actually need to be
