so, a lot of input post my question for 3.4 planning on "what do you 
want next"[1]

I've just aggregated the replies here at this point for easier 
processing going forward:

- ability to give permissions to group of objects (namely, VMs)
- support users/groups in oVirt DB as an authentication provider
- support keystone as an authentication provider
- kerberos login to webadmin/user portal
- stateless host (pxe boot, no local disks)
- detect updates and update host accordingly
- embedded pxe/tftp boot server, setup to deploy the nodes
- snmp & snmp trap monitoring

- template versions (ability to update template of a pool)
- pci passthrough for devices like Telephone modem, PCI-express cards,
   Graphic cards
- usbhost hook as supported feature (hardware license tokens)
- ability to provide libvirt features directly[2]
- dependencies between VMs (start db vm before webapp vm)
- Allow to clone a VM without snapshot/template
- Integrate v2v into engine
- oVirt guest agent for Ubuntu/openSUSE/SLES/Debian
- compatibility with OVF 2.0.1
- solaris as supported guest OS

- A backup and restore option
- iSCSI EqualLogic SAN support or use standard iscsi tools/configuration
- ATA over ethernet (AoE) as an optional storage transport
- DR
- DRBD, either with CLVM or perhaps GFS
- live disk resize
- disk ordering

- positive/negative affinity between group of VMs
- power saving policy moving hosts to sleep
