What exactly do these options do ? Is there anything describing the
pros/cons of the different options & is there a way to determine 
what the best option is for a particular VM ? 

Basically I'm wondering where/if this should be exposed in the XML
format, or whether libvirt could/should just internally pick the 
best one ?

Not that I'm aware of.
