Normally it works (haven't tried it in Xen but many times with native kernels)

The biggest exceptions are iptables and ipsec (freeswan etc.) which
have too broken interfaces to be emulated properly.  So you will likely 
need a 64bit iptables in dom0 at least.

I believe the Xen interfaces are also not emulated so in dom 0 you
will also need matching tools. This normally means a 64bit python.
Doesn't affect domUs of course.
