I really like this idea.  I think it's most important for ballooning, which is 
a really easy way to get a domain to commit suicide otherwise ;-)

I'd quite like to see it implemented Xend-side, though, with the "warning 
level" configurable (and probably disablable) in the xend-config.sxp so that 
users who really do want to create very small domUs can tweak the system not 
to warn them.
