> this imported VM will not be able to run Windows.
This statement is not true. The virtio drivers are only necessary for certain windows VMs (e.g. if you use IDE disks you don't need them) and the user may already have installed the drivers in the VM beforehand.

Also please not the v2v in RHV webadmin UI allows you to do exactly the same thing, perform v2v without drivers ISO attached, we are simply giving the user the same choice as in RHV.
