Even better, if each domain is only used occasionally, then you could

How would one implement such a "wake on LAN" functionality
for Xen domains ?

There are various ways. Maybe require explicit signalling from the user via some command to the control-plane tools (start up my domain / shut down my domain). You could also do it implicitly (although it may require some iptables hacking) by tracking network connections to the domain's IP address -- start it up on first connection / shut it down when last connection finishes.
