Actually the user specified XML only currently allows the chain names 'arp',
'ipv4', 'ipv6' and 'root'. Others will already be rejected when parsing the filter.

With the interface names I was assuming that at the point where this part here
gets called is already well after the establishment of tap interfaces and the
net->ifname contains valid values otherwise the creation of the tap or macvtap
would have blown earlier.

In the v4 patch series I am adding filters to examples/xml/nwfilter that are
automatically copied to /etc/libvirt/nwfilter for libvirt to pick up.

Gerhard has written a couple of test cases but they are for the external
test suite from what I know. So, yes, we'll add test cases over time.
