[libvirt] New feature discussion: Grouping multiple libvirt's in a "pool"

Greetings All,

I would like to say "Hi" to everyone on the list since this is my first 

I have couple of servers running CentOS and Debian with kvm and libvirt 
on top. Lately I've been thinking of coordinating them together in a 
pool like XenServer groups servers in a "Pool".

I am totally aware that this feature can be achieved by installing 
OpenStack or any similar orchestrator on top of libvirt. But I would 
like to achieve this feature using libvirt alone as I don't want to 
install any stuff above libvirt.

I was also thinking if each libvirt on every server is aware of other 
resources (Domains, Storage and Network), this could provide better 
support and view to any higher orchestrator utilizing libvirt.

So I am wondering if such feature was discussed previously? And would 
like to hear thoughts or concerns about it.
