The problem with this approach is that the user has then to include
*all* extents covered by the mimages being removed, and *no* extents
covered by mimages not to be removed.  (Hybrids turn out just as
awkward.)

No problem when you have one mimage per PV, but as soon as you've got
more complex layouts this form of syntax becomes much less forgiving
and harder to use and understand than proposal #1 IMHO.
