You'd also want to be sure that you were only accessing keys which were
part of the over ABI and not some toolstack internal thing, i.e. by
comparing with docs/misc/xenstore-paths.markdown.

For libxl we have a policy of never requiring toolstacks to need to go
and frob with xenstore directly, instead we provide an API over the top.
I think the same should probably apply to toolstack "consumers" such as
the xendomains script.

Right, this changes too dynamically to be in xenstore.
