The goal is to support all useful features, even in cases when only one
hypervisor currently supports a given feature.

I'm not sure if it is portable to other hypervisors, but the design goal
in adding such XML should be something that is generic enough that it
might indeed be portable to Xen, even if the initial implementation only
supports qemu.

You are more than welcome to help out.  I would start by proposing the
particular XML syntax that you think best represents your usage needs,
and get feedback on whether it makes sense and seems generic enough to
port to other hypervisors.
