It sounds to me like the real solution would be to either fix 
virDomainGetXMLDesc to return these missing fields, or add another call 
to get them, or (for the password) to store it elsewhere.

How about loading the original config XML and the XML from the running 
domain (virDomainGetXMLDesc), and then updating the config XML with only 
certain fields from the running domain?
