Thanks for the link.

Some thoughts:

        Guest RPC mechanism: jonathan.ludlam@xxxxxxxxxxxxx
        - upstream QEMU seems to have "virtagent" implemented, which is a guest 
RPC mechanism.
          Any chances to re-use/collaborate?
          see for example Subject: "[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v3 0/2] virtagent - 
fsfreeze support"
          and Subject: "[Qemu-devel] [RFC][PATCH v6 00/23] virtagent: 
host/guest RPC communication agent"

          git://repo.or.cz/qemu/mdroth.git virtagent_v6

and a new suggestion (not yet in the wiki):

        Xen block device live migration (storage migration)
        - allow moving VM from storage A to storage B without downtime.
          Upstream QEMU seems to have some block migration support already.
