Sorry if I wasn't clear--by "dynamic" I didn't mean "online", though
AFAICT from reading docs, ext filesystems can be resized online.

But I can shrink an ext filesystem and the LV that contains it, then
expand a different LV and the fielsystem on it, without having to move
the partitions so that the space is contiguous.  Way more convenient
than the alternative.
