Can't move an LVM partition?

My parted binary (v1.7.1 from Debian testing) refuses the move
LVM partitions.  Why is that?  I moved it by hand by simply copying the data
with dd and it worked dandy.  I suspect that the same holds for 99% of the
existing partition types (ext2, md, pvm, ...), so parted's `move' should
have a default implementation that works for any partition, maybe with
a warning that says something like "we don't know whether it'll do the right
thing for this type of partition".
