So what should we do then about rebuild the volume backed server?Until the 
cinder could re-image a volume?

Agree with this.

Things do get a bit weird with delete_on_termination and if nova 'owns' 
the volume. delete_on_termination is False by default, even if you're 
doing boot from volume with source_type of 'image' or 'snapshot' where 
nova creates the volume for you.

If a user really cared about preserving the volume, they'd probably 
pre-create it (with their favorite volume type since you can't tell nova 
the volume type to use) and pass it to nova with 
delete_on_termination=False explicitly.

Given the defaults, I'm not sure how many people are going to specify 
delete_on_termination=True, thinking about the implications, which then 
means they can't rebuild their volume-backed instance later because nova 
can't / won't delete the volume.

If we can solve this without deleting the volume at all and just 
re-image it, then it's a non-issue.
