Looking around a little on their website, they don't seem to
publish proper specifications. Without that, and neither having
access to a respective system to actually test eventual changes,
it would be rather presumptuous to try to extend Xen to support
this. (As a side note, we're in feature freeze right now anyway,
so this could only be done for 4.3 anyway.)

I submitted a request for access to full documentation to them,
but based on past experience I'm not having much hope that any
response will show up (not to speak of a positive one).

That can likely be taken as confirmation of above statement about
being (reasonably) compatible with an already existing HVM
