There's no reason this shouldn't work (people do it all the time)
Since we are focused on containers we don't ship the virt stack on
Right - I haven't even looked yet but with such a stripped down system
that is to be expected . .
can package layer the virt packages and run libvirt on the host, or

in a container. Either one works.
