If I remember right from my virDomainBlockCopy code (commit 37588b25),
empty paths are allowed for device types of cdrom, floppy, and lun, but
forbidden at parse time for type='block'<disk device='cdrom'> and <disk
device='floppy'> but notionally forbidden for <disk device='disk'>.

Maybe the comment is better as:

Returns true if the guest disk has no associated host storage source
(such as an empty cdrom drive).
