We are indeed planning to support xen-arm, but are waiting for hardware.
Dave and I both have Chromebooks A15 now, and we have patches floating around
for HVM/x86_minios.  An ARM PVHVM version should be quite straightforward.

Another summer project I'm happy to supervise (particularly for GSoC) is a
direct Raspberry Pi port, using uBoot as the main bootloader.  That should
shake out any ARM-specific issues in advance of a Xen/ARM port. Please get in
touch with me if interested in this one.
