To a first approximation the machine description probably wants to be separate 
from the user config file. There is some overlap and interlinking, but they 
tend to be aimed at different users. eg. the machine description will specify 
a particular scsi HBA with a MMIO address and wired to a particular IRQ, 
whereas the user just specifies they want a cdrom using a particular image.

I've been considering a machine config file for a while, but haven't come up 
with a coherent way of representing everything yet.
