Although the question was poorly worded by referring to downstream
elements, I still think the concept behind the question is appropriate
for upstream.  That is:

What good is the "rename-restart" <on_*> XML element?  Is it wired up
for anything other than xen?

A grep of the code base shows only:

src/conf/domain_conf.h:    VIR_DOMAIN_LIFECYCLE_RESTART_RENAME,
NWFILTER_FUNC_RENAME_CHAINS ebiptables_script_func_rename_chains
src/nwfilter/nwfilter_ebiptables_driver.c:    virBufferAsprintf(buf,
src/qemu/qemu_driver.c:        vm->def->onPoweroff ==
src/test/test_driver.c:    case VIR_DOMAIN_LIFECYCLE_RESTART_RENAME:
src/xenapi/xenapi_utils.c:    else if (action ==
src/xenapi/xenapi_utils.c:        num =
src/xenapi/xenapi_utils.c:    else if (action ==
src/xenapi/xenapi_utils.c:        num =

which looks like only xen has wired up the ability to automatically
rename a domain when restarting it.  If so, we ought to update
formatdomain.html to better clarify that not all actions are supported
for all hypervisors.  (Hmm, that page already admits that
<on_poweroff>rename-restart</on_poweroff> is treated like plain
'restart' for qemu/kvm; so really the question is whether we copied that
behavior for the new support for <on_crash>).
