Thank you for the information but I think my point still applies. I
mean, what are the options/conditions which can change this "hypervisor
dependent default option which may change at will"? A compilation
option? A qemu option? A libvirt option?

The current documentation is a bit cryptic for the user unless we
document _how_ is defined the "suitable shutdown method". Exposing what
is the current enabled method (if possible) could be interesting, too.
