the point isn't iSCSI, it's the filesystem in it.
a 'normal' filesystem (ext3, XFS, JFS, etc) isn't safe to mount at
multiple hosts simultaneously.
a cluster filesystem (GFS, OCFS, clusterXFS, etc) is specifically
designed for it.
in short, you have three options for sharing storage between Xen boxes:
1: NFS with file-based images
2: share a LUN, put a cluster filesystem on it, and put file-based images inside
3: multiple LUNs, each one is a blockdevice-based image
