Your wish has already been mostly granted.  0.8.5 introduced the 'virsh
memtune' command to both query and set memory parameters (so it wraps
both qemuDomainGetMemoryParameters and qemuDomainSetMemoryParameters),
and the upcoming 0.9.0 offers a few improvements to that interface as
well as a counterpart 'virsh blkiotune' for the blkio cgroup.

The 'virsh meminfo' command cannot easily change its output for
backwards compatibility reasons, which is why we added the new
functionality in 'virsh memtune' instead.

You are also welcome to submit more patches or ideas for patches.
