I suggest explicitly rejecting the <script> option then, since at least the
formatdomain docs make it sound like it's the only valid type=ethernet config.
virLXCProcessSetupInterfaceTap seems like the only shared place for it though

Patch looks fine otherwise, ACK if it's simple to reject the script bit, up to you
