I agree, this is a major feature to drop support for.  This is one major feature (of many)
that drove us to favor Cloudstack over some of the other IaaS options out there.  If it doesn't
block 4.0, I would make it very clear that the support for OVM is not in 4.0 so that a customer
doesn't upgrade thinking (assuming) you wouldn't drop such a major feature.  Maybe go as far
as adding something in the upgrade that if OVM is currently used, the upgrade fails.
