I plan to start with a hardware RAID (level 5) of one physical volume 
and one volume group. Then create several logical volumes from it and 
grow them each as they are needed pulling space from what's not used 
in the volume group until all the space in the group eventually 

Is it reasonable to believe that such an arrangement is stable enough 
that if anything were to ever go wrong a with an individual logical 
volume that it wouldn't impact the other logical volumes in that same 
volume group or the volume group itself?
