I think that might be a dangerous route to take, classifying upfront
whether it's that way or the other. Eg, if we say it's former, then
anyone adding any feature would not examine the best approach, but just
take hvm approach.

I think it's decided somewhat. Evolve to one of three approaches: PV,
HVM, or alternate, picking the easiest and fastest. IMO, at the very
least, pvh should retain "guest modified" characteristic, that would be
good for xen future imho.
