For what it's worth, it took me about 4 tries to get it all working.
I wound up using a script I found to clean the host and re-install it all.
 Of course the cleanup process let the firewall in a state where it
blocked all traffic (including SSH), but I figured that part out on the
2nd try so added it back into my script for the 3rd.  ;)

The other difference is that I had already created a bond0 interface which
was my default (with a non-NM-controlled static network).  However, that
shouldn't have made a difference.

Okay, so go and try it!  :)

Worst case, you need to run hosted-engine-cleanup.sh and then reset the
firewall and reboot, and then re-install everything:

You shouldn't need to "assign" anything in the /29 to the host.  All
that's important is that the physical network can reach the /29.  I.e.,
you could do something like:

     /32           /32        /29
router ----------- host ----  VMs

The host will bridge the network to the VMs, but it can be on a different
