I don't think we want to! And I hope there is no disagreement (we still don't

The reason I think xen would be better served having its own committed team,
repository, etc, is that it would be easier for anyone interested in xen to
follow just mailing lists dedicated to it and its repository commits, rather
than having to closely follow all the linux kernel work, mailing list, etc! Of
course I also think it's great to have some people on both, so to have a close
coordination between the xen and kernel releases.

Also the xen team would need to coordinate with the glibc team (for the
segmentation issues) and one day with the d-i team too, in order to try making a
Debian/GNU/Xen/Linux (or whatever that should be called) installable directly on
a system! 

Even upstream considers the linux kernel patch, the hypervisor and the tools
separate, has separate mailing lists for them, and a separate mercurial
repository for linux, even if for now they distribute the linux patch together
with xen, until xen is merged into Linus' tree (or at least so Ian Pratt has
said).  If we can have the xen patch included in the debian kernel, thus
pre-dating kernel.org inclusion that's really a good thing!
