  A couple of remarks at least:
    - the second XML is about communication between libvirt and
      the lDOM infrastructure (daemon i assume), since that's not
      public, not exposed to the user there is no need to change
      any of it. Only the instances passed to
      and returned by
      need to be aligned to match the existing XML format.
    - Looking at the first example, once removed the RPC encapsulation
      it seems it should not be too hard to map to the normal
      XML format, except for a couple of things:
        + the network bridging support definition should probably be moved
	  at least partly to a separated set of API see
	  unless I misunderstood the scope of the definitions embedded.
	+ a lot of time identifiers are being used in the format,
	  where in libvirt format we would normally use a full path to
	  a device, maybe we can still map the identifiers back to a real

  Independantly of the XML change, I think there is a well defined set of
changes which were identified already, if you can provide updated patches
for those, then i can probably do the XML mutation part of the patches on top
of them.
