Yes I see on your qemu that you are on yakkety - ok good.
Not SRU broken Xenial but "only" certain cases of Yakkety.

thinking ...

So while anything you'd start as soon as the Xenial SRU lands will work
in yakkety you are right and identified a gap where things can break.
That is older (pre SRU) created Xenial guests - which due to an older
bug appear as wily guests - can't be started on Yakkety.

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QemuKVMMigration defined the dropping of all
types before a former LTS release on the next dev release.

But due to the former issue on Xenial that means on Yakkety we have to
maintain the "Xenial type" in its old AND new form.

Ok, now all fits together - I can prep something for that.
