Correct me if I'm wrong but it seems that the vlan support is not in netcf yet...

Of course, the code is available there..

  https://fedorahosted.org/netcf/

We simply haven't finish plugging it into libvirt

netcf doesn't concern itself with TAP devices - those are related to
guest domains. netcf does allow you to configure anything you would
traditionally do via /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts (or /etc/network
on Debian). So creating bridges on VLANs over bond devices, and
that kind of thing.
