I was able to use --wait=-1 in combination with subshells to have the 
install reboot successfully. This was hit-and-miss though where some 
domains would work and others would give the error:

ERROR    cannot send monitor command '{"execute":"query-balloon"}': 
Connection reset by peer
Domain installation does not appear to have been successful.
If it was, you can restart your domain by running:
   virsh --connect qemu:///system start rhel-56-x86-64-gvbp

I am no longer using --wait and monitor virsh domstate like you 
suggested. Now it's paralleled and fully automated.

Thank you for your help.
