I've separated the usb passthrough into separate scripts like this:

and passthrough using
<hostdev mode='subsystem' type='usb' managed='yes'>
  <source>
    <vendor id='0x045e'/>
    <product id='0x00db'/>
  </source>
</hostdev>

and then passing it through using
virsh attach-device doug-win /home/doug/keyboard.xml

However, even that's not 100% since I'll often lose mouse/keyboard or
both when I switch from DVI to HDMI.

here's the rest of my config:

virsh --version
1.2.18.1

QEMU emulator version 2.4.1 (qemu-2.4.1-1.fc23)
