Yeah, it's kind of a mess.  I'm open to suggestions about how to improve it.  With the requirement that users be able to override identifiers and work across multiple hypervisors/platforms, this was the best I could come up with.  It is really going to be a mess when we have to come up with identifiers for KVM, other hypervisors, and hardware.  We may want to just break out platform-specific configuration into a separate manuals at some point.

Or maybe in a few months we can just remove all the prepended "xs-" bits again...
