In fact a little good news. I've just re-checked Xen 3.0.4 and this does
indeed work. You can start a guest, and then change its config at will
using virDomainDefine. Its just my hand-crafted  3.0.3 inactive domain
driver which doesn't let this work - which I can trivially fix. So this
thread looks like it may in fact be a non-issue.
