Also, snapshots aren't as easy to create our manage.

Plus, with btrfs subvolumes you *can* delete files from snapshots and actually free some space (like the large download which you no longer need). No such luck with LVM.
Plus, creating a snapshot with LVM requires a consistent FS state. How do you assert that (and keep it until the snapshot command returns), on a live system, if you can't unmount?

I know that ext3, ext4 and xfs all work fine after a LVM snap.
