True, for example this sequence will also end up with a leftover mapping in
the system that is a consequence of the same problem, linear mapping:

vgcreate -cn vg /dev/sda
lvcreate -l1 vg
vgchange -cy vg
lvremove -ff vg

Metadata updated but the mapping left! So it does not work with linear as well...
