This part will probably need fully dealing with in the tools, with the
hypervisor only refusing to set up conflicting P2M entries (as iirc
you're already doing).

This one I would guess would benefit from the tools doing the checking
if they can, but perhaps the hypervisor is in a better position to do this.
If I'm right with this, at the tools level it would need to be made certain
that this doesn't end up in a cryptic and/or well hidden error messages,
leaving the operator to guess what went wrong.
