No, no "user may want" etc vague formulations. Just because some virt
thing "can" do stuff doesn't mean we should change the kernel. What are
the clear benefits of your proposal, why should it go upstream and why
should it be exposed to everybody?

How is going to be used it and what would it bring?

Are there any downsides?

Thx.
