"VM synchronization point" is a single host management layer.

The biggest difference between Qemu and VirtualBox engines, from
programmer's point of view, is that if you write any program for Qemu,
you must reimplement management layer yourself.

VirtualBox already provides single-host management layer (via
VBoxSVC). Registered VMs. Each VM remembers it's parameters, such as
RAM, HDDs assigned, Network adapters (along with MAC addresses),
