Sorry, but if you have a clustered filesystem with some TB of available
and some tens/hundreds of configured DomU,
is NOT probably (for manage complexity) that you have a dedicated LVM

I does not can go into your words,
but I think that shapshot problem are TOTALLY independent of used
During my message in this thread, I have write that vmware
have a very powerfull tool that allow to try a consistent snapshot....
....I does not have idea that this tool work, but....
And it's make vmware very powerfull, with a really and simple backup
If it's possible have same condition with XEN, I think that one of major
they do choose vmware would be less!
