Yes, I believe that's the case.  It would be a similar effort to what the virtio drivers was.  Although, there might also be the possibility of using the Xen OCaml drivers, but I'm not sure if they are easy to get at without pulling in the entire PV platform code.

I don't have plans to do it.  Have you considered using the "xen" target (PV) for EC2?
