I was unable to successfully boot, which is the only time I would envision using Safe Mode. Tate there other practical situations where Safe Mode is used and one is able to fully boot their Mac? I can't image any. That's really my question.

I believe the problem with Safe Boot and FileVault 2 was fixed in Mac OS X 10.7.4. I am able to perform a Safe Boot to start up in Safe Mode with FileVault enabled on a Mac running Mac OS X 10.7.4.
In Mac OS X 10.7 through 10.7.3 it appears that one either (a) could not perform a Safe Boot with FileVault enabled or (b) that no indication of Safe Boot was provided. I suspect (a) since a "Safe Boot" notification started appearing in the upper-right side of the Login Window when I perform a Safe Boot under Mac OS X 10.7.4.
I believe the AppleCare Knowledge Base article "OS X Lion: How to perform a Safe Boot if FileVault 2 is enabled" only applies to Mac OS X 10.7-10.7.3. I've sent feedback indicating that the article should be updated as it appears this problem was corrected in Mac OS X 10.7.4.
Unfortunately, no indication of this change was provided in the "About the Mac OS X 10.7.4 Update" document.
