Default Mount guest LVM read only

Can anyone explain where the corruption happens with leaving kpartx maps in place? My primary question: is corruption possible even if the partion inside the guest LV is mounted read only on the host?

The LV in question is only used for data storage. So it is possible that the guest could be performing a write operation on the data when the host is trying to read. Is this a problem?

Thanks,
Kara
