If you're asking "is it a best practice to convert HVM domU to PV?",
then I don't know.
It works, but for me it's easier to use debootstrap, and use the
resulting filesystem to create a template (in tar.gz) then create
domUs using that template :D

If you're asking "how to convert HVM debian domU to PV", here's what I
did some time ago for Ubuntu and Centos domU :

Debian convert process should be similar to Ubuntu, with the main
difference that Debian uses init instead of upstart. So instead of
creating /etc/event.d/hvc0 (Ubuntu), you need to edit /etc/inittab to
spawn login prompt on hvc0.

Hope that helps.
