I agree that 'vol-edit' (or even a subset 'vol-rename') would be nice,
but someone has to code it up.  Meanwhile, you can use 'vol-create-from'
or 'vol-clone' to create a new volume based on the old one with
identical contents but the new name, then delete the old one; but this
is obviously storage-intensive compared to just renaming things.

Your short-term workaround may unfortunately be limited to doing things
manually with lvm commands.
