I do not have much to contribute to the technical discussion around Xen
dom0.  All I can say is that, in my work with corporate end-users, it's
a FAQ; seems like Xen is entrenched in a lot of organisations.
Maintaining and supporting a dom0 kernel would make the life of these
organisations much easier, and even open new opportunities for Ubuntu in
the enterprises.
