All things are possible, to some extent :)

That's actually something we've discussed -- Mindy Preston was
starting to work on it. The approach we were taking was roughly to use
Irmin to serialise state -- a first prototype doing this for ARP is at
https://github.com/yomimono/irmin-arp. Extending this to the full
TCP/IP stack is definitely an interesting thing to try! (And now that
Irmin has more Xen support, it should be possible to push it forwards
