- what are the ranges for the values of <container> elements and attributes
I don't understand what this question means.

      <uts> seems to be OS metadata, we already have an <os> element in
      existing configs why not reuse that.
Ah, yes, I missed that. How about:
  <os>
    <type machine='i586'>vserver</type>
    <hostname>testvm</hostname>
    <release>2.6.12</release>
    <distribution method='debootstrap'>etch</distribution>
  </os>

  Looks far better to me compared to other formats already in use,
yes I guess that's fine. <release> still looks a bit weird to me
because in an OS you may see an awful lot of different releases,
and it's hard to guess what it is about (the linux kernel one ?)

Yeah, but it's not a very common option, so it is not going to be used
very often (or at all). If you have another name that might describe it
better (the OS-release, as per uname(2)), please let me know.
