you are correct.

What I am saying is that hiding spice's default with adding

diff --git a/src/conf/domain_conf.c b/src/conf/domain_conf.c
index 27fcdf1..67b9e2a 100644
--- a/src/conf/domain_conf.c
+++ b/src/conf/domain_conf.c
@@ -1798,6 +1798,9 @@ virDomainVideoDefaultRAM(virDomainDefPtr def,
         /* Original Xen PVFB hardcoded to 4 MB */
         return 4 * 1024;
 
+    case VIR_DOMAIN_VIDEO_TYPE_QXL:
+        return 64 * 1024;
+
     default:
         return 0;
     }

seems suboptimal to me.
