Personally I wouldn't, but it's your choice. In my opinion LVM adds another
complexity layer, more stuff to manage, and you will need to keep the sizes
of the various logical volumes in sync (whether you are distributed or
replicated), and grow your XFS filesystems whenever you grow the logical
volumes.  But if you need that level of control, it's fine.
