Also if you are specifically interested in domain create/destruction
(from the hypervisors PoV) then I think you can add a xenstore watch on
"@releaseDomain" and "@introduceDomain".

As far as the hypervisor is concerned things like migration or
suspend/resume are just domain creation or destruction, the "illusion"
of anything more is provided by the tools.

If you are interested in the creation/suspension/migration/etc of
domains at the toolstack level then it depends which toolstack you are
