With LVM it is possible to create many logical volumes.
One may want to create a lot of (small) logical volumes and  
use them as backing devices for drbd for replication 
to some hosts with also a lot of logical volumes.
Now drbd have flexible meta data so replication of
small size block devices have sense. Someone may want to
make replication on many small devices.
