Yeah. The point behind my asking was if one would be able to run 
RHEL/CentOS 6 as a dom0 - as it is derived from Fedora and reflects the 
available bits at the time of the OS freeze. In other words, if there is a 
normal upgrade path concerning Xen from RHEL/CentOS 5 to 6 or not. So, at 
the moment it looks like you can't run RHEL 6 as a dom0, but this may 
change until it's release depending on the upstream (kernel.org?) kernel 
having the relevant xen bits in time for an RHEL release (which is 
promised for 2.6.29 or so at the moment). 
You can probably run RHEL 6 paravirtualized on a RHEL 5 dom0.
Correct interpretation so far?
