I think this may have been true of v3 but I think it is underselling v4.
AFAICT with the final patch in v4 Xen will actually be capable of
booting on a ThunderX platform and starting guests. It will simply lack
PCI passthrough capabilities (as do all ARM platforms today).

I think that's a reasonable thing to try and get into 4.6.
