While I agree that this design is broken I don't think we can do this.
Okay, for now we only support 0; but what if in the future we invent a
new flag? With current virsh one is able to use it however with your
patch he isn't.

Therefore I'd rather see slightly different approach. Like we do for
other broken options/arguments in virsh - hide it, don't mention it
anywhere but keep the code.
