I believe that we agreed on what was our goal through this thread.

Yes, you are right. We can't expect where logical extents are
allocated for '--alloc anywhere'

I think that 'mirrored log' capability is very useful and enhancing
availability is our next step. It is helpful if users can directly
build a mirror volume, which has a mirrored log and is built on two
physical devices and also each physical device contains a mirror
leg and a mirror log, by a simple command line.

I hope this explanation would be helpful.
