Opposite. In the dom-u, you replace xen-br0 with eth0. 

On dom-0, you ensure that xen-br0 has the IP of whatever network
interface normally talks to the Internet, typically eth0.

If your install is typical, xend will
run /etc/xen/scripts/network-bridge targeting eth0 to make it xen-br0
when it starts on boot. Likewise, if you stop xend, network-bridge
should restore eth0 to an un-bridged (not enslaved) state, putting it
back the way it was. You should not need to worry about dom-0.

Exactly. On dom-0, eth0 becomes br0, which backs eth0 on guests who have
vifs attached to it.

Hope this helps.
