The storage of persistent configurations is implementation defined. With
some drivers libvirt takes care of it directly, with others it is delegated
to the underlying hypervisor specific tools. We're not going to replicate
that in libvirt because it'll cause interoperability problems with tools
which aren't libvirt based
