Thank for your follow-up.
More comments here,
Should we keep the default behavior like before? e.g. VG/LV should be 
auto-activated by default like before.Otherwise, some users will feel
strange after lvm upgrade.

Second, how to keep the compatibility with the existed VG/LV? since we 
can upgrade lvm2 version, but VG/LV is possible old. I wonder if there 
are some Reserved Bits in lvm meta-data layout to use? if yes, I feel 
this proposal is very perfect.
