I removed them - maybe you missed my updates?

It's not really relevant to Fedora - we're not going back to the bad old
days of having a separate Xen kernel. We made the call in Fedora 9 to no
longer waste effort on any forwarded ported 2.6.18 tree and focus all
efforts on upstream pv_ops, since that's where the future lies.
Personally, I'm disappointed to see this linux-2.6.27-xen.hg tree
appear. Any effort invested in this tree is effort that could be spent
on helping with the upstream pv_ops work.

A volunteer to do this would be very welcome indeed :-)
