The point of "Node" is that it should be like an appliance. You should
not care what is "under the covers". You just use it as a back-end
appliance that talks to oVirt. So it should not matter what version of
OS it runs, right?
If you start doing things that are particular to the OS, two major
disadvantages come to mind:
1. You will start "bloating" the system by adding new dependencies. This
dilutes the value of a minimal node that minimizes management requirements
2. You will diverge from what's been tested by the oVirt QA team. This
increases the risk of your deployment.
Since Node is supposed to be an appliance, I would prefer that the oVirt
team focus their energies on making it as small and robust as possible,
rather than putting their energy into multiple OS versions of Node.
