Follow-up Comment #2, bug #33229 (project grub):

I consider this a bug in truecrypt. mbr gap is for usage exclusively by
bootloader, not for storing keys. (Having TrueCrypt bootloader there is
another story). Also the sector 62 is pretty loved by boot viruses and some
malwarelike DRMware (e.g. FlexLM). MBR gap isn't for valuable data but only
for system code.
BTW as to necessity of Reed-Solomon: it's necessary exactly because of
malwarelike DRMware and misstorage controllers.
