Yes they do.

The issue I am trying to avoid is that if we treat ovirt as a live spin,
it breaks some previously set rules, and there isn't a well functioning spins
SIG to make exceptions.

Also this is the third different base for a mini spin. There really should
be some work done to have nested levels of smallness so that work can
be reused. But this probably isn't going to happen any time soon, and may
not be a good reason to hold up a new spin.
