"For some commands" allowing a -1 provides a mechanism to set an almost
infinite time without having to type such a large value.  Still in this
case since, the "downtime < 1" check immediately follows it seems that
wouldn't be the case here!

Looking at QEMU code briefly - I do note the QEMU set downtime (and
speed) commands that end up getting called are listed as "deprecated" in
favor of migrate-set-parameters (downtime-limit and max-bandwidth, since
QEMU 2.8).  So while you're at thinking about a getmaxdowntime type
functionality maybe you'd want to give that a go as well (of course
you'd have to add capabilities to detect when it was implemented using

In any case,
