Inherently dangerous? Nonsense. It should not be inherently dangerous if
the resize tool and LVM do their jobs properly. Resizing should be a
perfectly safe operation when done properly.

reiserfs supports reduction. I have done it many times. I wouldn't be
surprised if the others do too but I haven't used them yet.
