That's a really hard piece of information to provide, in general at the
VM-level, because various applications inside the VM may require different
latency guarantees.

That said, this makes me wonder if the idea of virtualizing a sound card
isn't the right approach here, and instead, the pulse clients (be they
native or via the alsa pulse plugin) should be contacting a pulseaudio
server on the host? Would it be more feasible to manage latency this way?
