Ok, here is a patch that accounts for various lifecycle events, e.g. 
on_reboot, on_poweroff, on_crash. The new elements (children of domain 
element) are

on_reboot: Action to be taken when domain is rebooted.
on_poweroff: Action to be taken when a power off or shutdown operation 
is performed inside the domain.
on_crash: Action to be taken when domain crashes.

action values can be one of
destroy: The domain is cleaned up as normal.
restart: A new domain is started in place of the old one.
preserve: The domain will remain in memory until it is destroyed manually.
rename-restart: The domain will remain in memory until it is destroyed 
manually, and a new, renamed domain is started.
