These are actually very good questions :-) If dname is provided, it overrides
the name from XML (no matter if that's from GetXMLDesc or dxml).

However, if dname is not provided by dxml is and it contains domain name which
is different, the destination libvirtd will have the name from dxml while
source libvirtd will use the original name and migration will not work if
those names do not match. But we don't currently have an explicit check for
dxml name. I'm thinking about requiring the name to match either original name
or dname (if set).
