I think that to support other serious distros would highlight the fact 
that oVirt is distro agnostic. Today oVirt still is "RedHat-centric"

Debian, of course, it is upstream of Ubuntu and its release criteria 
compares to Centos or RHEL

I think that implementing host in Debian/Ubuntu would involve less work
