It appears that Amazon does in fact offer Paravirt.-based high-IO
instances, see this announcement for details:

So perhaps there is something else that is preventing the official AMIs
from being deployed. Is there a configuration setting in the marketplace
that sets a limit on what systems the images can be used with?

Awesome. I'm also investigating whether it would be reasonable to link
to the marketplace or some other listing of "official" Debian presences
in the various cloud provider from the main debian.org site.
