What's preventing you from storing all your domU configurations in /etc/xen?

You can link to them if you want them started automatically:
# cd /etc/xen
# ln -s mydomU auto/mydomU

That way you can still start them with
# xm create mydomU

Also makes it easier to stop a domain from starting automatically
without nuking the domain configuration:
# rm /etc/xen/auto/mydomU
