I also wondering about these requirements.

I think, one with these requirements needs to think the storage again, for example using live snapshots capable filesystems, like zfs (I use it for the same purpose) or ceph.

Stock Proxmox with lvm/ext3 backend not really easy or lightweight to backup like this.
