  Okay, applied, but I would not rely too much on this. After all 
this identifier need to be unique, that's its only key property and when
you create a new domain it would feel perfectly right if xend forced 
this new id by forging a new one each time ignoring the informations
passed. That a restore of a domain preserves the UUID is sensible,
but at creation time, I don't think you can rely on the software 
accepting the ID.
  As said applied anyway, commited, but beware relying on it does not
sound logical, at least to me.
