Xen is
a) server-focused, so such stuff has no priority
b) but also opensource, so if enough people come together much is
possible ;)

That would be cool, a 3d-driver in dom0 that works without patching, and
a 3d-driver in xorg in the domU that just has an option to communicate
with the one on dom0 to render stuff.

For directx-apps i see not much in near future with xen. The thing next
to this is vmware fusion on mac that can run some older directx-version
in the virtual machine.
Maybe a windows graphicdriver is technically possible that could do this,
but again, xen is more serverfocused.
