Well, to make it less scary this idea includes the --backup-file option but I do not know what this backup file will contain. Either, it is all the data — then I defdinitely do not have room for it and it would take about as much time as using R Sync to move to a new Logical Volume. Or, it is just RAID configuration data — in that case, it is much too scary for me.
