When the documentation says "storage traffic", it's actually talking
about traffic to and from the secondary storage of the zone.  The point
of that bug, is that it's obviously quite confusing to simply call it
"storage traffic".  What we've done, in order to isolate traffic
intended for *primary storage* (Xen environment at least) to a dedicated
pair of NICs on the hosts, is to pre-create the storage volumes in the 
Xen clusters.  Then, CS simply knows about the pre-existing primary storage, 
and you are able to have at least host to primary storage traffic
running through it's own cables to the top of rack switches.
