Hm, this works just fine for me; I'm able to choose any of the above
when I create a guest.  However, you don't want to edit the /etc/libvirt
file directly.  Libvirt only reads that at startup and reload; during
runtime it isn't re-read.  To make the edit, you'll want to either
use virt-manager or "virsh edit <guest>".

If that doesn't work, post your entire XML file.
