This seems like a reasonable approach.

Virt-manager will then have cater for both cases, when libvirt can
provide this info via QMP query commands and when it can't.

I've also searched RH bugzilla tickets for libvirt (product:
Virtualization Tools), but couldn't find a bug report about this.

Should I file a new bug report so we can track this?
