Trying the SPICE KVM, I must add a raw section to use QXL:

RAW=[TYPE="kvm",DATA="<devices><video><model type=\"qxl\" heads=\"1\"></model></video></devices>"]

It could be automatically enabled when selecting SPICE for KVM VMs.

Note that I'm defining a more useful RAW section which enable the use of spice-vdagent and 3 USB buses:

            <model type='qxl' heads='1'/>
             <sound model='ich6' />
        <channel type='spicevmc'>
            <target type='virtio' name='com.redhat.spice.0'/>
        <redirdev bus='usb' type='spicevmc'/>
        <redirdev bus='usb' type='spicevmc'/>
        <redirdev bus='usb' type='spicevmc'/>
