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.
