Oh, right, that makes sense, more so than the cfg file based scheme I
suggested (although eventually I expect that the will be needed too to
express the admin's wishes, that's not relevant here). Thanks for
explaining the actual usage.

I think we could make it opt-in for toolstacks which want it rather than
opt-out for those that don't, since only xend and xl want them (I
think???) that seems like a manageable change. The xencommons initscript
might work for touching the file, but perhaps the xend initscript and
something internal to libxl/xl (which doesn't have it's own initscript)
would be better. Only question is who removes it in the xl case.

Since the file is automatically managed I don't think /etc is the right
place -- probably somewhere like /var/run (which handily gets it cleaned
up on reboot too).

Sounds interesting, do you have a link? I didn't see anything in the
xen-api archives, but perhaps it was elsewhere? (or is this a reference
some other toolstack?)
