I'm not so sure. Perhaps just a quick hint, in xl manpage, I'd say.

We can reference the thread on the wiki, and we can put a few sentences
about all this there. However, trying to link "some relevant theory" is
unpractical, as it won't be easy to define what both "some" and
"relevant" mean. :-)

I'd be in favour (and ca do so) of adding a reference to the RT-Xen
website, and maybe to one of (the original?) RT-Xen paper. But nothing
