We just need it to have near-enough feature parity. Actually now it supports HVM guests I'm tempted to just move over to it.
Go ahead! It is really time to stop forward-porting stuff. The time is much better spent in adding the missing features to pv_ops/dom0. Also just after the 3.4 release is the perfect moment for that move, 3.5 should be able to ship with a pv_ops based kernel then.
