If the decision that we want to remove replicated volumes on purge 
hasn't changed, then yes, it's still relevant.

But it might be a good idea to introduce this change close(r) to the 
next release, and mention it in the "known issues", so fewer people are 
surprised by it.

In any case, this depends on another patch (as mentioned above), so you 
probably want to take a look at that series first (it still applies for 
me): https://lists.proxmox.com/pipermail/pve-devel/2020-October/045388.html

The second patch is the important one.
