That is correct, Dom0 doesn't seem to grow back.
An "old-school" type, like myself, is also reassured somewhat, by
allocating only what dom0 would only ever need - net services,
compiling, running programs, etc. is isolated to domu's. Then, in the
event dom0 is ever compromised (though very highly unlikely), or even
if I accidentally start something there, dom0 can't take memory away -
a DoS prevention, of sorts...
