In that case, I definitely agree that you should aim for a stateless
driver. VMWare has pre-existing config files / tools / APIs that can
be used for the libvirt driver.

The libvirt-CIM work is very active - there's another mailing
list you could ask on, if they don't notice your questions here

   http://libvirt.org/CIM/
   https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/libvirt-cim/

I know the people working on CIM have a good test suite that is
validating their work on a frequent basis against Xen and QEMU
libvirt drivers. This is described in their wiki pages

  http://wiki.libvirt.org/page/Cimtest
