Not ideal, but my approach was to add hook scripts into the block device
script and consider a vm down if xvda1 has been removed:

Line 229 (below the FRONTEND_UUID):
   /path/to/block add ${XENBUS_PATH}

Line 324 (below "remove)"):
   /path/to/block remove ${XENBUS_PATH}

xen1 scripts # cat block
set -x -e


VMNAME=$(/usr/bin/xenstore-read ${PATH}/domain);
DEV=$(/usr/bin/xenstore-read ${PATH}/dev);

if [[ "$DEV" == "xvda1" ]]; then
    # Do stuff

exit 0
