If my understanding is correct, this is not necessarily true, the LVM
modules just have to be unmounted. I run LVM on my home (gentoo, not rh)
machine, and though I've never had occasion to do hot-adds, I seem to
remember having to unmount and tweak some lv settings while the machine
stayed up, and it seemed to work fine. I'm hardly an expert on LVM
