I can't comment on this part, but if so that seems unfortunate.

I don't know about others, but I certainly interpreted a number of posts
saying exactly that--that it's useful so it should be included.

I don't think anyone is arguing that Xen is not useful or that it should
not ever be included, rather the question is whether the current set of
patches is suitable for addition or whether they are too messy and
should be cleaned up first.
