Actually, we might want to add a parser flag (or feature bit) to ignore
all other features when parsing. The aa-helper binary does not really
want or need to validate all the stuff necessary here and it might also
create problems since the feature bits are specifically designed to
reject XMLs which have certain elements (if the bit is not enabled).

This means that not-defining VIR_DOMAIN_DEF_FEATURE_USER_ALIAS would
actually make the parser fail on any XML which has user aliases despite
the fact that the aa-helper does not actually care about them at all.

Having a way to disable that is preferred, since having two definitions
of this would actualy result into one of them being out of sync all the
time.
