On the other hand, if we don't support transient interfaces, then the

Well, although we have function interfaceCreate, it is actually (from
semantic POV) interfaceStart, because it just start inactive but defined
interface. So we do not support transient interfaces. Therefore
transitions for interfaces are slightly different from transitions for
domains. That's why I think we do need this patch.

Let's nail down the transitions that we plan to support, then, just as I
did earlier for domains.

It would be even cooler to have a life cycle diagram with the API used
to transition between states documented somewhere.  I seem to recall
seeing one for domains once, but couldn't find it in 5 minutes of
searching right now.

You mean

?
