I tend to agree. The core team seems to write this as a helping aid of learning the platform and getting to know KVM. I really like that approach :).

However, if it's meant to be a "toy" (and I don't mean this negatively in any way), it really should be declared as such. Calling it "kvm" for example would be a huge mistake in that case.

Either way, I like the idea of having a second user space available for x86. Even if it just means that it verifies that the documentation is correct :).
