Thanks for your explanation. So you mean I can achieve it by migrate the VM 
from Xen 4.0->Xen 4.1-> Xen 4.2 ->Xen 4.3? And successfully to migrate VM from 
xm toolstack to xl toolstack?

BTW, I think it is really important feature to cloud vendor since they want to 
upgrade their Xen to a certain version not N+1. Maybe we can take it into 
consider in future release.
