I have a half drafted email for the libvirt devel list proposing this
exact thing.  Allow an element in the XML that tell libvirt how/if it
can/should migrate a device.  As noted previously I'm happy to do qemu/libvirt
work to help openstack.

Doign this would solve a few other issues in openstack without breaking
existing users.

So now I look like I'm jumping on your bandwagon Phooey
