    If this means by 4.11/4.12 I can have 3D acceleration over SPICE or similar I will be extremely happy.

      If only there was as much effort put into getting Xen and/or KVM as the dominant hypervisors in the enterprise - but that requires solid scaleable management frameworks and working with other companies e.g. Veeam. Unfortunately ESXi and Hyper-V are the market leaders outside of cloud infrastructure, and that doesn't seem to be changing in the slightest.

        You probably missed several years of virtualization evolution. Most of public cloud providers use XEN (AWS) or KVM (RackSpace and huge group of companies supporting OpenStack). Many of smaller cloud providers invent their own OpenStack on top of KVM.

          oVirt (Especially 4.0) comes very close to ESXI in terms of management suite.
          Whether or not it'll be enough to make RHEV a viable alternative to ESXI is another matter altogether.
