I think you are going to have to write some OS specific code every time
you port an OS anyway. The question is where it ends up.

With the registry approach you have a clean protocol in domain 0 and the
guest OS specific code stays in each corresponding guest OS.

With the batching up the complexity approach I think there is a risk
that you end up with a bundle of guest OS specific code all coupled
together in the domain 0 code which seems less good to me.
