Even if it did, can Linux handle it anyway?

Windows certainly can, On VMware (would work on bare metal too) I have disks connected via the iSCSI initiator, can increase the size of the target, refresh within Disk Management or diskpart.exe and extend the volume without a reboot - provided it's not a system disk.

I haven't tried it on Xen with an LVM/phy: disk to a Windows domU (yet).
