Yeah, I figured that out after digging a bit more :)

I'm not quite sure how to fix it properly, though. Adding yet more
properties to the list of those we record before calling
virDomainNetDefClear() and restore afterwards would be a stop-gap
measure at best; limiting ourselves to merely changing net->type,
on the other hand, though it seems to work from a quick test, will
likely lead to hitting other corner cases.

Formatting the XML, replacing the type attribute and parsing it
back perhaps? Other, hopefully better, ideas?
