I don't think domUs are guaranteed to run on *older* versions of Xen than they 
were designed for.  Note that the converse case works: you can upgrade 
dom0/Xen/tools and leave the domUs, but not the other way round.

Depending on the upgrade you are making, this may work, however I don't 
believe we make guarantees about it always working (yet)...
