That would break other tools which rely on their output. F.e. cluster
resource agents of libvirt (yes, it runs lvm tools rather then using
API, which is not yet complete btw). As I also need to obtain this
information, I think about writing simple tool (f.e. clvm_tool) which
would display needed info.

As a workaround you can run lvchange -aly without force parameter. If it
succeeds, the volume is locked in a shared mode, otherwise it is locked
