You can use it for other things, but I wouldn't recommend it. If you
really want to, just be careful not to confuse volumes: PVE uses LVM
tags to identify its volumes, but for added safety avoid calling *your*

No dancers here, but check back on a Saturday night. ;)
Jokes aside, I prefer to avoid LVM mirrors as they are a relatively
recent addition, not as tested as MD mirrors and besides I don't like a
few things about the implementation. Anyway, software RAID is not
supported by the Proxmox team: use hardware RAID with battery-backed
cache if you care about performance.
