What do you mean by 1:1 relation? Between storage domain and the number of
LUNs the domain reside on?

No problems with storage domain extension.

Depends on your needs, be aware to the following:
- Each domain has its own metadata which allocates ~5GB of the domain size.
- Each domain is being constatntly monitored by the system, so large number
of domain can decrease the system performance.
There are also downsides with having big domains, like less flexability
