I've used both virt-manager and Boxes and while you're right that the

experience) + it covers pretty much all features required by power
In the last LinuxVoice magazine virt-manager even won the contest of
desktop virtualization tools for Linux, so apparently others don't find
it so hopeless and not being a viable contender.
And BTW Adding RDP support to Boxes is planned.
I heavily use Gnome Boxes on Fedora 24 for testing Design Suite. One of
its benefits is the ease of use as I have less time to fully customize
virt-manager and the nearly seemless setting. Granted bugs still occur
like occasional flickering on some distributions.
One of few elements Boxes needs is GPU passtrought, files sharing and
remote connection (potential to replace vinagre)features and improved
hardware acceleration. I agree with Adam that seemless integration of
some features from virt-manager will be great.
