Thread-topic: dom0 memory requirement

Is there a recommended minimum size for dom0's memory footprint? I recall reading that the hypervisor requires 40 MB for itself. And yes, I realize that you can dynamically resize dom0 using the "xm mem-max" and "xm mem-set" commands.

I'm looking for a best practice out there for sizing dom0 RAM that should be followed. Any ideas?
