Indeed - it's theoretically possible to install Xen on a remote box, reboot 
and have it Just Work(TM).

Unfortunately if you make a mistake you've got to wait for someone at your 
provider to go boot your machine into something sensible again - speaking 
from experience, that makes sorting out mistakes rather time consuming.

Serial console is definitely nice to have if you can get it at your colo
