That's correct: most of channels should be directly between guests and
not to dom0.  It's convenient to be able to do this via dom0 for some
services such as xenstore/xenconsoled, but we could work around this
without too much difficulty.

George: my use case certainly isn't a blocker for 4.3.  We can maintain
local patches for this specialised use case.
