I think most people here think the same. Xen do not need to be in main.
Xen is only needed if there is a demand for a feature Xen has and KVM not.

And most people will agree in everything else you wrote in your mail. I
have several KVM and Xen server up and running and I think KVM will be (or
is, if you prefer ;-) ) the virtualisation technology for the future. But
sometimes an admin needs Xen for various reasons and then they get driven
away from Ubuntu for now. Something that is not so good for the wide
deployment of Ubuntu server.
