Currently on migration, we first ask the planner to return a list of possible hosts to migrate
to.  Do you plan on duplicating that in this case?  We should do that, then by default we
won't allow hosts for hypervisors that don't support it.

However, just like current migration, there should be a force option where the admin can force
it and when that's true, then just fail as you pointed out should be fine.
