And extra layers + latency etc.

What you're saying sounds exactly right. Plus we can't stick a SW
initiator in Xen without a TCP stack. My only hope would be a HW
initiator. How annoying. I wonder how much work it would be to
support what I'm thinking about? Managing NFS root for n virtual
machines is much more annoying to manage. It would also make this
a much harder sell internally.
