    conf: checkpoint: Don't require <domain> when redefining checkpoints · abf12f07

    The domain definition stored with a checkpoint isn't used currently
    apart from matching disks when creating a new checkpoints.
    
    As some users of the incremental backup API want to provide backups in
    offline mode under their control (obviously while compying with our
    documentation on how the on-disk state should be handled) and then want
    to define the checkpoint for live use, supplying a <domain> sub-element
    is overly complex and not actually needed by the code.
    
    Relax the restriction when re-defining a checkpoint so that <domain> is
    not necessary and add (alibistic) documentation saying that future
    actions may not work if it's missing.
