As long as you can quorum, you can make changes. As long as the vlserver
lets you make changes, it will be fine (that is, it won't let you do
anything if not enough ubik sites are up).

Changing the volume name/ID will not be noticed by clients, though,
until you issue a 'fs checkv' on them, or if about 2 hours pass.
