Why not. This is bog-standard, has nothing to do with Xen at all:
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
# The loopback network interface
iface lo inet loopback
# The primary network interface
iface bond0 inet static
slaves eth-gb1 eth-gb2
iface vlan891 inet manual
iface br891 inet manual
iface vlan894 inet manual
iface br894 inet manual
iface vlan897 inet manual
iface br897 inet manual
My two physical interfaces are eth-gb1 and eth-gb2; these names are
prescribed by editing /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules to
match the interface names printed on the case.
and the domU config files contain lines like:
vif = [ 'mac=00:16:3e:01:f0:73, bridge=br894',
'mac=00:16:3e:01:f0:75, bridge=br897' ]
