duplicity needs manifest and signatures all the time but volumes only for 

you can use --file-prefix, --file-prefix-manifest, --file-prefix-archive, 
--file-prefix-signature parameters together w/ S3 lifecycle rules to move only 
volumes to glacier.
the parameters were introduced especially for this use case.

this of course only works for a new backup chain as your old one was created 
w/o these parameters.
