Yes, actually, I agree, it seems strange that you have to make two 
different calls to get all domains active and inactive. And overloading 
the id to indicate inactivity is lame, even though Xen does it. It's 
totally reasonable to imagine another virtualization system that 
maintained a domain's id across active/inactive cycles.
