source activated Windows guest

Description of problem:
An activated Windows guest will be asked to re-activate after conversion, for hardware changes significantly. I know that is Microsoft's rule. But it is not convenient for customers to use V2V if they need to re-activate their Windows guest. Is there any solution about it?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
virt-v2v-0.6.1-1.el5

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Activated your Windows guest
2.Convert it to RHEV
3.Run the converted Windows guest in RHEVM
  
Actual results:
Activated Windows guest will be asked to re-activate

I don't believe it is possible to fix this issue without fixing Windows.
