It's not a bad idea, it's just not a possible one :)
What you have seen is talk of the paravirt *drivers* that
you use in an HVM domain to improve the otherwise useless
performance. As windows is not opensource, the Xen guys have
not been able to write code on their side to paravirtualize

However, there has been some agreements done with Windows
Server 2008 and "Enlightenments" but I haven't followed it.

Setup an HVM, install windows, and give James Harpers GPLPV
Drivers a go.
