The XML-files in /etc/libvirt/qemu represent libvirt defined VMs, you
should never edit these files directly while the libvirtd service is
running. You should either use 'virsh edit [vm_name]' or alternatively
virsh dump followed by virsh define. If you edit the file directly
while some manager is running (like virt-manager in CentOS), your
changes will most likely conflict with, or get overwritten by,
virt-manager. Nothing critical should happen, but I don't see any
reason for encouraging doing it The Wrong Way(TM).
