Needless to say, if you're backing up /etc/libvirt/<whatever> make sure
libvirtd is down first, so that all the settings are properly dumped by the

Absolutely!  Not concerned about downtime here, just that after the upgrade everything comes back up like before.

Speaking of settings dumped into XMLs, why are the files in /etc/libvirt/qemu ever so slightly different from a manual dump using virsh dumpxml & friends?  E.g., for a domain I have a section

<resource>
  <partition>/machine</partition>
</resource>

<alias ... /> entries for all devices, a tty attribute & <source ... /> for console, etc., in the manual dump only?
