After further investigation, this was fixed on lvm2 side (userspace) in
https://sourceware.org/git/?p=lvm2.git;a=commit;h=a6fdb9d9d70f51c49ad11a87ab4243344e6701a3
(snapshot: keep COW writable for read-only volumes).

So I guess that's it. Time to poke my distribution package maintainers
to bump the package version.
