I wonder, is there a meaningful difference in behaviour between giving
dom0 just the memory it should have, or giving dom0 all the memory
there is and then just ballooning free space for the virtual machines?

If ballooning is a working option, the default could be even to give
all memory to dom0. (Ofcourse excluding what is needed for Xen to
properly function.)
