Let me reiterate ...  I am not proposing that we drop it from the
archive, but merely move it from Main to Universe.

We use (and depend) on dozens of packages every day that are in
Universe.  You would not lose access to virt-manager, but rather the
stated support for the package would actually line up with the reality
I feel we currently have.
