I know that there is discussion on getting dom0 support into Fedora 15, 
with maybe 50/50 chance that it will happen. I suspect that will be the 
focus for the near future. Xen dom0 support is going into the mainline 
2.6.37 kernel, but there are still patches that are needed.

Once the bugs have been ironed out, I suspect that CentOS support will 
follow soon after. There will be experimental kernels before then, but I 
would not recommend them outside of test environments.

In short, stick to CentOS 5 in production for the foreseeable future.
