that's what I do, for simplicity sake. I do all raid in Dom0, usually 
also LVM (sometime I do use simple/plain/old partitions in dom0 and LVM 
is domU, but very rarely).
after that it's fairly easy to create a new LV (or simply a file in 
/var/lib/xen/images -- even if it's just bind-mounted from another disk) 
and use it for the new VMs
