Additionally, it would be a good idea to add a .xml file somewhere in
the tests/ hierarchy that has such a domain name, as a way of getting
test exposure of both the RelaxNG schema validation and of actual XML
handling in libvirt itself.

Only if it is the first character of the domain name, but yes, this
aspect alone makes me need to see a concrete example of someone using a
domain like this before we can add support for it.
