If you are going to be using these DomUs for anything even remotely

Just my 2 pence

Even without keeping beside the memory-max? I remember Having done it
too but it did not turn the system unstable AFAICT.

Does anybody have similar feelings about playing with meme making Linux
domU unstable?


Read the section "http://wiki.xensource.com/xenwiki/XenBestPractices";.
Even though that talks about Dom0, the same still applys for DomU as
they run Linux too.

That should be "read section "Why should I dedicate fixed amount of memory for Xen dom0""
