No, the whole point is that a domU cannot disturb dom0 unless a rendezvous
point has been set up by the tool stack.

Who are the messages to be picked up by? Tool stack? In which case why not
just stuff messages via a well-known /local/domain/x/... xenstore node which
tools would watch for all alive domains x?
