I tried it and indeed the NUMA topology for a memory-less node shows up totally broken in the guest. From your comments on the linked bugzilla I thought that it worked properly if you specify memory='0' explicitly. Since cpu-less nodes are possible for a long time and with the new cpu-hotplug API you can select individual vcpus to hotplug according to the id I was under the impression that only the syntax-sugar stuff was necessary to cover everyting.
