I think to a certain extent, yes. For example, when the guest OS
configured a device, this configuration should be loaded again. On the
other hand, if you start qemu with a different virtual hard disk, that
should be okay.

The principal question should always be: If I work with QEmu, then savevm,
can I continue working after restarting QEmu and loadvm?

Like I said, it was a quick shot to begin with. But its easier to work
from a known working state, and then remove what should be removed. Later
this week I will give it some love.
