Possibly, though its not terribly consistent so far. 

Xen  - vifNNN.MMM   (NNN dom ID, MMM = nic number)
QEMU - vnetNNN      (NNN = global host nic number)
LXC  - vethNNN      (MMM = global host nic number)

We can't change the format Xen uses, but it could be desirable to make
LXC, QEMU and OpenVZ all use  vnetNNN scheme by default for auto assigned
nics names on the host side.
