What are these and how are they used ?

xenstore.txt currently has only the xenstored<->domains protocol, and
doesn't specify the structure or meaning of the xenstore tree.

interface.tex is supposed to do the latter but it's hopelessly out of
date and of course no-one really wants to edit TeX when they update

If some kind soul were to make a stab at extracting the relevant
(true!) parts of interface.tex into a new .txt file that would be very
nice :-).
