that only one original disk is involved in virt-resize?

virt-resize is part of libguestfs, and as such is not maintained on this
list.  You'll get better answers about why virt-resize does not support
in-place resizing by asking on that list.  But the answer probably
involves the fact that virt-resize is doing MUCH more than resizing the
block device - it is also copying entire filesystems from the old
location to the new resized location for optimal initial placement.
