maybe you can ask it to xen-devel.
but i guess that they will say "hey, do you still use 100 mbit network?" (i 
must say that i will never use a 100 mbit in producion, you can buy for 20$ 
an e1000 on ebay...)

both (see below).

i agree, except for some applications.
we have 4 labs, and we must configure some machine with an ip on all the labs 
(they are on different network).

that are trusted machine, so it is a good way to setup it directly in domU.

but generally speaking, yes, it is bad.
