I remember such discussion (which, BTW, is here:
http://lists.xen.org/archives/html/xen-devel/2012-08/msg00332.html ).
However, wasn't that supposed to help only in case you want to confine
Dom0 on one specific node?

That would definitely be already something, but not quite the same thing
that came up in Dublin, and that George was describing above (although I
agree it covers a sensible subset of it :-) ).
