Correct, oVirt 4.0 will support version 3 of the API, and if you
explicitly request it (using the "Version: 3" header) everything should
work as it worked in oVirt 3.6.

The current plan is to drop version 3 of the API with oVirt 4.1, but
that isn't written in stone yet, may be later (but not earlier).
