I haven't done completely new xen setups on 5.3 yet, only on earlier
kernels and for these the answer is: no.

Most of the recipes I know of either use virsh (which needs libvirt and is
not xen-specific) or they advocate some oldish ways (like bootstrapping
from a kernel outside of the VM) or are not aware of paravirtualization.
A "virt-install -p" (for paravirtualized) should get you going in an
interactive fashion. If you have a kickstart file you can do a completely
automated install with virt-install.
