I think they should be general virsh options similar to -c and they should be
applied to any connection virsh makes. Applying them only to migration doesn't
make much sense. Any libvirt daemon can hang or lose network connection, it's
not in any way to daemons that serve as destination during non-p2p migrations.

Yes, it can be a good default value. Did you try increasing the keepalive
timeout on destination deamon (/etc/libvirt/libvirtd.conf) too? Anyway, as
with any timeout, no matter what value we choose someone will need to increase
it :-)
