I don't see this. The data has been migrated to the new host.
What would we loose?

IMHO having 2 virtual host definitions in your net using the
same uuid, mac address and storage is just asking for troubles.
There is a high risk to start both guests in parallel by accident
(corrupting your storage beyond repair), or to manually clean up
the wrong guest.
