This was my original plan, but I'm not very sure about this, so I turn
to Julien for help, and...
Here is part of the irc log from a discussion with Julien on
#xendevel, where Julien said:

   blackskygg: I think you want to pass the current domain in
parameter, i.e having 3 domains argument.
   because your solution only works when XSM is not enabled (this is
the dummy callback)
   when XSM is enabled, the policy would be specificed by the administrator
   he needs to be able to know which domain was doing the configuration.
