I suppose there is the potential for LVM metadata to become corrupt if it can 
be written in both the hypervisor 
and the guest.  I avoid this happening in my dom0 with an edit to 
/etc/lvm/lvm.conf to set:

global_filter = [ "a|/dev/md.*|", "a|/dev/sd.*|", "a|/dev/xvd.*|", "r|/.*/|" ]

This allows LVM to consider /dev/md* /dev/sd* and /dev/xvd* as possible pvs but 
ignore any other block devices.
