Even if done after deactivating the VG on all but a single node?  That
would be a bug.  According to my understanding, it should work.  I never
tried, though, as snapshotting isn't my preferred way of making backups.
On the other hand I run domUs on snapshots of local LVs without any
problem.  And an LV being "local" is a concept beyond LVM in the above
setting, so it can't matter...
