Well.. dom0 is the most common "driver domain", but normal domUs can
become driver domains aswell.
An example: You want to use domU as a network driver domain, providing
vif backends for other domUs. You'll probably use PCI passthru to assign
and dedicate a physical nic to this domU, and then you run xen netback
driver and required tools in the domU to make it serve vifs for other domUs.
See here for a tutorial:
