Not really, on the destination the disk state will not be _further
updated_, but no reversion happens.
Migration with "snapshot=on" makes sense if you are resuming a VM from a
saved checkpoint ("-incoming exec"). You can use it to debug a
migration load, for example, because you want the resumed guest to
always start with the same disk contents. It's somewhat weird, but it
definitely has its uses. A blocker would be a pain in the ass...
