No, unfortunately not because "virsh change-media" wouldn't be able to
convert its argument to the required libvirt XML.  I think you would
need a new virsh change-media option, e.g. --xml, that takes a <disk>
element instead of a source path + target path pair.  However, I am not
a libvirt developer.
