If you present the reason, libvirt will pass it on to the management
app.  But I don't see any reason why libvirt itself would care about the
reason, so it won't hurt libvirt if you drop a reason field.  I don't
know whether higher-level management apps, like oVirt, would care or not.

Isn't this something where it is easier to omit first and add later once
we have a use case, than to add up front only to find that no one cares?
