I think that renaming is an excellent approach.  If a reserved name
is discovered when activating a VG, rename it to something legal but
recognizable.

I remember when this used to cause problems on AIX - because all LVs
had to be unique, so importing a foreign VG would rename all the common
LV names - very annoying.  But this is not a big problem with lvm2 because
only the VG needs to be unique.
