We've successfully tested iSCSI as storage as well, and may use it for data storage.
Our understanding is that live migration of guests is better on NFS than iSCSI.

Just tried migrating with user logged in - still arrived on new host in unclean-shutdown-reboot state.

Will try experimenting with noapic boot parameters and similar.
