Proxmox uses in fact the openvz kernel, which is based on the RHEL 
kernel (6.x) + openvz patches.
Newest version of Debian, Wheezy (just released yesterday), does not 
support openvz.

I don't see where it is hard to use KVM/Qemu with PVE. I am using 
exclusively KVM on PVE and the web management interface make it very 
easy. With the bare metal install, all you need for that is installed 
and configured at once.
If you want to use libvirt/kvm, you better have to do it wirh RHEL, or 
at least CentOS, but it will not provides for example a cluster from 
scratch to manage your nodes.
For that, you would have to use for example ovirt (clone of RHEVM) but 
it is not available directly in CentOS (and much more complex)...
