Creating snapshot without dm_snapshot.ko being loaded works in my system. 
It just loads the dm_snapshot module. dm_zero isn't automatically loaded.

This is a trace for attempting to create zero lvm (without any snapshots):

#lvmcmdline.c:986         Processing: lvcreate -vvvv --type zero -L 16M -n z2 vg1
#lvmcmdline.c:989         O_DIRECT will be used

#locking/locking.c:230       File-based locking selected.
#config/config.c:927       Setting global/locking_dir to /var/lock/lvm

#lvcreate.c:445   zero: Required device-mapper target(s) not detected in your kernel
  Run `lvcreate --help' for more information.
