Yes, very droll ROFL.....
I should really have said there is no way to 'access' the KVM rather

Yup, I can see that would be a possibility, if you could get to the
disks easily a 1000 miles away buried in a data centre.... :-)
The problem is if the lvm-thin takes up ALL your available space you
cannot backup to 'local' (easily accessible) storage, even if you wanted
to with said VM running.
And a snapshot on the lvm-thin partition woudl be inaccessible and you
would be in the same place.
So no access to VMs and no access to backups/snapshots
I was wondering if there should either be some different
defaults/choices for single servers, or some warnings of the consequences ?
