Stubdoms are lightweight 'service' or 'driver' domains. The initial
purpose was to offload qemu (for hvm guests) out of dom0.
So with stubdoms you can run hvm guest qemu in a separate stubdom, which
boosts performance and makes it more secure.
stubdoms can also run for example pv-grub for pv guests, making it more
secure compared to pygrub, which always runs in dom0.
Presentation about stubdoms at Xen Summit:
Those should help.
