Technically this issue may be resolved via MAC-addresses;
you may specify your own MAC range in ovirt engine's DB,
and in your DHCP server, assign a pool o this mac range.
For specific VM addresses, assign the ip to the specific
MAC in the DHCP server. I know it's not a perfect solution,
but may work around issues until ovirt has such support.
