Very good summary of changes.

I'm sure there will be a lot questions about (missing) dom0 support, so
maybe add even more information about it.

Xensource plans to have pv_ops dom0 support ready for Xen 3.4, so maybe add
that information. http://www.xen.org/download/roadmap.html

I think (at least earlier) the plan was to submit pv_ops dom0 patches for
inclusion in Linux kernel 2.6.28. I'm not sure if that is still the plan. 

pv_ops/dom0 patch queue:

The table is really nice and gives nice overview of the changes made.
