Right, I can see both reasons. But now that Peter raised it (again,
sorry) at libvirt level reporting usually means "to report something to
user". QEMU <-> KVM communication is too low level and since this is not
being reported to user directly (even though it affects
"stat-free-memory" attribute of the balloon) reporting does sound a bit
weird. Let's wait for Peter's opinion.
