I don't see a reason for changing the exportname, but the default
dirty bitmap name
expose libvirt internal implementation details  (e.g
"libvirt-1-format"). We would choose
use something like <backup-uuid>-<drive-name>.

Displaying the names in the xml is important now, being able to modify
it is nice to have
for oVirt.
