[Fedora-xen] No Dom0 support in Fedora 9 and Fedora 8 EOL

I'm putting together a virtualized server. I was planning to use 
Fedora 9, until I found out that Fedora 9 won't run as a Dom0, so 
I ended up using Fedora 8 instead.

I also learned that the standard EOL policy is to discontinue 
support for release N one month after the release of release N+2.

Since Dom0 support isn't expected until Fedora 10, it sounds like 
this means that I will have to upgrade my system in the first 
month immediately following the release of Fedora 10, or lose 
support. Neither option seems particularly reasonable to me.

Since upgrading from Fedora 8 to Fedora 9 isn't an option for 
anyone using Xen, I am wondering if there is any plan to extend 
Fedora 8's support period beyond the usual one month?
