My humble opinion would be "no". This argument equally applies to
everything you could configure on a host, and I don't think anyone wants
to turn libvirt into libmanagement. Would it be feasible for libvirtd to
have a 'passthrough' mode that feeds unknown stuff off to some other

Especially in this case - interface management is very complex as you
