Sorry, but I'm failing to see that we can be proud about not supporting
Xen in Debian - it's an important Software, used by many people, and
this situation is really pityful.
Really, that's not to blame Debian at all - I do work quite a bit with
Xen, and know the problematic situation, and mentioned this extensively
in my last talks at FOSDEM and Debconf - upstream doesn't provide a
kernel patch for an up to date kernel, and Debian developers don't have
so much manpower...
But I really don't see the story to make this very public, even less,
how this will actually help the situation.
