I'm not sure I understand why this is impossible ?

You always have two virConnectPtr objects - one of the source, and
one for the destination host. The reason for the optional URI is to cope 
with the scenario where the clients view of what the destination hostname
is, has to be different from the source host's view.

eg, if a node is multi-homed, 10.0.0.1 and 192.168.1.1

Then the libvirt client might connect to source and estination
hosts with

  xen://10.0.0.1/  (source)
  xen://10.0.0.2/  (dest)


But, the source & dest may only be able to talk to each other
using 192.168.1.1/.2, so yu'd have to give a extra URI for
xenmigr://192.168.1.2/  so the source host used the correct
network address for the actual migration.
Either way, the libvirt client can get the resulting domain
object, from the destination hosts virConnectPtr instance

I'm not sure why it returns NULL there ?!?!

The passed in 'domain' object is owned by the caller, so the caller is
responsible for free'ing it once its done using it. Likewise the returned
ddomain object should also be free'd by the caller when it no longer
requires it
