Ok I tried with the reasoning above.
I agree with his argumentation that for domains that do not properly shutdown 
with pv and acpi fallback intervention by a admin was and is required.
But i try to explain that for this special case it doesn't matter if xl 
shutdown tries to do the acpi fallback automatically, since this admin 
shouldn't use xl shutdown on this domain anyway.
