Actually, <pae/><nonpae/> was intentional, to indicate that both modes 
of operation could be used.  (Perhaps the error, then, is that if PAE is 
not supported, <features><nonpae/></features> should be used?).  Anyway, 
I don't really understand the specifics of selecting PAE and non-PAE for 
Xen guests, so I'll punt on this to Dan.
