In general yes its fine, but for specific targeted needs,  
virtualization may not be a viable option which I think was the point.

I think pass through is very very cool which VMware Player/Fusion  
doesn't do regarding graphics.

Having multiple cards/resources in a host and doling em out/dedicating  
them to any VM would be very cool.

Hence PVOPS 2.6.32 and Xen 4.0.1.

Although KVM is also supposed to do this.
