  Yup, to me they are different level.

  The reason it would be useful to save this in xenstore is to garantee
the same vision between different application managing that node (for example
a remote supervision tool and a local launcher used by the user). Otherwise
just keeping this information in libvirt own memory would be just fine,
I'm still unsure the need to synchronize is really there.
