I think it's ok to leave it for the users decision.
IMO, if the LV is not active when lvconvert is executed,
there is likely a reason the LV is not activated.

It followed the way linear-to-mirror conversion used to work.
If linear inactive LV is converted to mirror, syncing doesn't
start until it's activated.
(With that regard, maybe I should have let lvconvert take
  '--wait' rather than '--background' and return immediately
 by default.)
