While we're on the topic, what is the reason for having volume groups
in the first place rather than just having a reference in the volume
header saying "I am a backup volume for volume XYZ" to establish

Is the "volume numbers share all but the last three bits" criterion
visible to the cache manager, or is this something that could be
altered just on the servers and admin clients (vos, bos, etc)?
