[OpenAFS] Homedir Backup Strategies

Does it work to:
1. Have homedirs be forced-r/w mountpoints, use vos addsite / vos release
for backups and do 'vos convertROtoRW' as recovery? I can't see why this
one wouldn't work.
2. Do a 'vos copy' to another fileserver and then 'vos rename' the copy
back to the original name for a restore? I'm concerned that the numeric
ID of the volume would change and that cache managers might wind up
I'm trying to get fast on-line/near-line recovery in the event of a failed
shelf or otherwise corrupt fileserver, without going through 'vos restore'
for every volume. The 'vos backup[sys]' command doesn't get me what I
want because in the event of a shelf failure the clone is gone as well.
