We've actually had this need a number of times...  Say for instance, 
you've installed a new version of software in volume X for testing 
purposes, or as Derrick suggests, using the volume as a web backend.

Then you run out of disk space, have a failing server, etc, and you need 
to move the RO replications - there's no easy way to do so without 
releasing the volume.
