I looked around a little bit on the internet, and there's not really a
good, brief description of what LVM is.  Everyone describes it by
expanding the acronym.

Perhaps we could label it as a choice:

[ ] Use logical volumes instead of partitions

But, we still do use partitions to put the PVs on so that could be
pretty confusing.  I'm not sure we can do too much better than your
first example.  I think all other attempts are going to end up using
"volume", whatever that means.
