I've heard something about that sometime ago, and I remember hearing
that domU support will be kept by Red Hat, actualy, altough dom0
support won't. So, as far as we have a functional dom0 (whatever
distro we choose), we would be able to upgrade our domUs to RHEL6
without big problems.
So, that's what I intend to do, once I didn't know about that whole
thing about Red Hat and Xen by the time I chose RHEL as distro for a
Xen box, for one of my customers.
