I think you are mixing two distinct things here

- minimum PV size
- minimum device size which is considered for lvm metadata scan

I think that minimum PV size should remain fixed in code.
The second is runtime variable, you can adjust it per user needs.

I thought we meant:
Minimal size of device, which will be scanned for LVM metadata.

IOW it should be filter, not limitation for PV creation.

(But maybe I just misunderstood what Alasdair wants here...)
