The problem with that is that the host OS has zero knowledge
of how the guest OS is using the memory it's been assigned.

You can configure your guest like
Doing so would give you 2 GB of initial memory and the
ability to increase that up to 4 GB at runtime.
So in the virDomainInfo structure, maxMem corresponds to
<memory> and memory corresponds to <currentMemory>.
Confusing, I know :)

You mean memory = 512 MB and maxMem = 1 GB, right?
PS: This whole thread would have been more suitable for the
libvirt-users mailing list - libvir-devel is targeted at
the development of libvirt itself. Not a big deal, but
maybe keep that in mind the next time :)
