xen-gl is under active development at this point. Of course beta testing will help greatly :) I am a bit forgetful wrt to syncing my page with reality. Expect a few updates soon. Nevertheless, the code is usable afaik. It's working fairly decently for me and some other people that have emailed me.

What about a different approach like using dom0-card for everything?
Accessing the domU via vnc/x-protocoll would allow usual programms to
use, with the xen-gl forwarding from
http://www.cs.toronto.edu/~andreslc/xen-gl/ you could start 3d-stuff in
the domU and see it in dom0.

Yeah, it seems like this is the way to go. I saw the xen-gl stuff also
some time ago.  The only thing that's unclear is how stable is it, and
is it further developed. The page is lat updates in september.

Also, I thought, for example when using bug prone and non-verifiable
binary-only graphics drivers, it might be more secure to run them in a
domU. For other Hardware there is the conecpt of driver domains.

The XDMCP stuff works nice, only I don't find a way to run this in
full screen mode - this is easy with vnc, which in turn doesn't offer
a full x session login, and hs some color problems sometimes.
