I think that bigclouds meant the bizarre-looking properties that are
sent by Engine automatically, with no human interventions, per VmDevice that is
reported by Vdsm but not managed by Engine:

 'VmDevice {vmId=46914913-8bcf-4fa0-b1fb-3680ca8b6c16, 
deviceId=a19855be-70a9-49d0-9ea4-ee746b2d9739, device=virtio-serial, 
type=CONTROLLER, bootOrder=0, specParams={}, address={bus=0x00, domain=0x0000, 
type=pci, slot=0x06, function=0x0}, managed=false, plugged=true, 
readOnly=false, deviceAlias=virtio-serial0, customProperties={}, 

It was an attempt for future-compatibility, by (ab)using the custom properties
interface. Certainly Eli or Igor can explain the motivation better.
