Not especially. Obviously it needs to be at an IPA which the guest can
map, so if you expect to run 32-bit dom0 (or even if you don't expect
but it is a possibility) then finding somewhere under 4GB would be nice
to have.

Alignment can be whatever, but again it might be nice to make it
somewhat naturally aligned.

We've got a plan to get rid of this annoying requirement to specify this
manually in 4.6...
