Actually I have just run the same test but I didn't see any issues:
vif-bridge gets called correctly when the domain dies.

It is difficult to tell what is going wrong in your case because
vif-bridge is not called directly by XL (or Xend), it is called by
vif-setup, that is called by udev when the vif network interface is
I suggest you check that your udev scripts are correct
