When VMs goes to unknown status, all control options are grayed, and the only way to fix this is to update the Database manually, it will be nice to be able to force the engine to poweroff the VM from admin portal.

Sure you will need more components, but we don't want to duplicate the effort,
implementing ceph support directly in ovirt. Using Cinder we can reuse the
existing ceph support, and gain also support for other Cinder drivers for

On the host side, we will have of course ceph specific support, so you will
be able to create ceph volumes directly, and use vdsm api to start vms using
these volumes, if you want more "direct" support.

I think this is the general long term approach; integrate openstack components
instead of re-implementing the wheel.
