Re: [Xen-devel] Proposal for init/kexec/hotplug format for Xen

No, not fundamentally true.  The registry approach decouples the

the domain connects after it boots.

Yes, this is what I envision. Cooking things into binary-encoded device trees or hotplug events could also work, and might be less code in the guest OS, but I think it's a lerss clean design and would need more special-casing in domain0.
