build-debian-cloud vagrant provider

I have a vagrant provider generating a vmdk flat disk usable by vagrant.
I still face an issue though.
I tried to remove VirtualBox dependency, as it is in contrib now, to create the vagrant box.
Vagrant providers in its package a vmdk file and an ovf file. But it seems that VirtualBox needs/wants a StreamOptimized vmdk (vagrant provides vmdk only, no vdi), see below an ovf extract from a VirtualBox generated box:

    <Disk ovf:capacity="1073741824" ovf:diskId="vmdisk1" ovf:fileRef="file1" ovf:format="http://www.vmware.com/interfaces/specifications/vmdk.html#streamOptimized" vbox:uuid="90462558-f532-4165-abd5-f7b3bc1788a4"/>

Using flat vmdk fails at VirtualBox import.

The issue is qemu-img fails to convert raw file to vmdk with StreamOptimised option (see [0]).

do you know any way to specify in ovf that we use a flat vmdk? (maybe would be fine for VirtualBox) or to convert a raw vmdk to streamoptimized vmdk without VirtualBox?
