libvirt Domain XML used to define the guest domain is shown below:

<domain type='lxc' id='1'>
  <name>vm3</name>
    <memory>1000000</memory>
      <os>
          <type>exe</type>
          <init>/bin/bash</init>
      </os>
      <vcpu>1</vcpu>
      <clock offset='utc'/>
      <on_poweroff>destroy</on_poweroff>
      <on_reboot>restart</on_reboot>

      <devices>
        <emulator>/usr/libexec/libvirt_lxc</emulator>
        <filesystem type='mount'>
          <source dir='/root/lxc/fedora'/>
          <target dir='/'/>
        </filesystem>
        <interface type='bridge'>
          <source bridge='br0'/>
        </interface>
        <interface type='network'>
          <source network='default'/>
          <target dev='vnet7'/>
          <mac address="00:11:22:33:44:55"/>
        </interface>
        <console type='pty' />

Creating multiple NICs works in current libvirt 0.8.8 - I tested with 4 NICs
