So my plan was to use LVs directly as partitions in the guest

/dev/vg/lv2 -> /dev/hda2 (or /dev/hdb1 FWIW)

 AFAIK this way is not to be supported in the future.

it would be a real shame.

Agreed. It makes snapshotting and backup of the mountable filesystems one heck of a lot easier to manage, without the vagaries of having to interpret the disk images internal file structure.
