The plan is to package the rombios and the vgabios that ships with qemu 
(These got checked into bk earlier this week).  This BIOS is known to
work with the PC platform emulated by qemu.

In other words, the answer to your question is, yes - Xen + VT can 
present a standard PC platform to a guest OS, including the firmware.
