This functionality doesn't belong in the initscripts. It needs to be done
as part of the individual hypervisor drivers, so for example, it can be
delegated to XenD daemon, and behaviour controlled  on a per VM basis
via the API. Many OS don't even use the initscript managing the libvirtd
daemon via a service management framework, like Upstart.
