I'd be happy with that as long as there is still a way to override
it.  I have more than one dom0 on the same LAN so I need to keep my
MAC address assignments in a database.  In theory one dom0 could be
made to query all others, but I see the open source version of Xen
to be just one (admittedly major) building block of a larger system
and it does not need to do everything.
