I think realistically libvirt should prevent domains with / anywhere

   at least for QEmu, yes
Also, Justin Clift raised with me the issue of what happens if someone
creates a domain called 'autostart/foo.xml' or 'networks/foo.xml' or
'networks/autostart/foo.xml'.  The configuration files for these would
work and overwrite special paths under /etc/libvirt/qemu.


It looks like a domain (and likely anything else that has a 'name') whose name contains a ';' or spaces is unaccessible from virsh unless one finds out the uuid ,which only root can do(?). Probably this is only a problem when using virsh, but maybe the user should be given the choice to delete the VM (in that special case) or at least also display its uuid upon 'virsh define/create' so he has a chance to actually use/delete it.
