Much better :-) its always better to confirm things when possible.

luks seem to be of type "LUKS1". I assume "LUKS2" will show up at some
point in the future and specifying "LUKS1" on "LUKS2" volumes will fail.
"NULL" seem to be "future" proof option and i wanted to use it but i though
i should confirm since it wasnt mentioned.
