That's a good point. I know the system VMs are auto created if the system is aware of their
state being either 'Destroyed', 'Expunged'. If the state is 'Starting', or 'Started'/'Running'
then no actions are taken. 

In your scenario, the system VM would still be 'Started' in the database even though communication
is lost to the host, so no automatic action would be taken.

Subject: why system.vm.use.local.storage? 

Why do we have the configuration system.vm.use.local.storage? Why would 
somebody care if they systemvm is on local storage? I'm guessing the idea 
here is if it's on local storage we can't bring it back in a host failure 
situation? But don't we just recreate the systemvm?
