It's not just /etc/libvirt/qemu/*.xml.  It's also
/var/log/libvirt/qemu/*.log.  And while we don't mind telling people to
leave /etc alone, we actively encourage people to use /var/log, and
anything we can do to make the logs more usable (names instead of uuids)
is worth it.

I'm in full agreement with this patch, but think it doesn't go far
enough; we probably also want to forbid domain names with a leading '.'.
