[ I'm no XEN expert, but I think the answer is self evident. ]

no. Think about it. None of the VMs have any concept of how busy the CPU
is (since they can't peak at the other VMs). If this is permitted, I'm
pretty sure it would be considered a bug.

XEN (the hypervisor) could conceivably use this capacity... as _it_ knows
how fast guests voluntarily give up the CPU.
