  I'm not sure I understand.
I would not want domain configuration files to be stored to a specific 
place in the tree. This generates a duplication of data problem and
also possibly a dependancy on the given hypervisor. The acquisition/
modification of domain data should relly go though the API or virsh
dumpxml and define commands.
But maybe i didn't understand...
