Doesn't this leave the possibility that a script might decide to write
"sponge"="42" in the xenstore directory, for its own purposes, and
that libxl might later decide to try to pass "sponge"="bath" for an
enhanced interface ?

I think you need to specify which names each user is entitled to use.

Also, you need to say something about access control.

You need to say what scripts should do with unknown parameters.

The output is written into xenstore ?  (Also, typo.)
