OK, another idea:
would it be possible to trick btrfs with a manufactured file that the
disk is present while it isn't ?

I mean, looking for a few minutes on the hexdump of my trivial test
partition, header of members of btrfs array seems very alike.
So maybe, I can make a file wich would have enough header to make btrfs
believe that this is my device, and then remove it as usual....
looks like a long shot, but it doesn't hurt to ask....
