You're right to ask, IMHO.

The rationale will be better explained by others, I'm sure, but here
goes:

    Any serious virtualization management tool needs to be able to 
    configure the networking interfaces on a remote host.

    libvirt aims to be an all-encompassing API for such management 
    tools.

The obvious worry is how will we decide where to draw the line? If
someone is writing a virt management tool that e.g. needs to install
packages on hosts, will we add support for that?

Cheers,
Mark.
