Yes, that's what I've ended up doing, and it works, but it goes against the intention of the howto. The howto was showing how you could have one basic set-up, and then copy it an instantiate it for several different virtual systems. If you have to edit the copy for each system, that's not as smooth as only having to edit the configuration file for each one.
