Summary0013248: Default behaviour for volume rendering between image and unstructured data
DescriptionPV does not support client-side volume rendering.

As a result, when running on parallel, the behaviour of volume rendering is not consistent between image and unstructured data: if the data set is small enough not make the server-side threshold, then the client only renders the outline.

From a user's perspective this is bad for at least 2 reasons:
1. The inconsistency between image and unstructured data cannot be easily figure out, and is counter-intuitive, as one would expect that the easiest case (regular grid) is handled when the hard one is not--but the opposite occurs.
2. The way to fix this behaviour requires relatively advanced knowledge of PV, and is a bad fix because it forces server-side rendering even for small data sets when this is not warranted.

Therefore I suggest that client-side VR be either never, or always (i.e., for both image and unstructured data) permitted.
