But it shouldn't.

dom0 shouldn't care what the domU uses the disk for, and domU's xen
block frontend shouldn't really care what other kernel subsystem or
userland uses the block device for. Whether it's encrypted, or used
for filesystem, or used as raw block device for database, or whatever.

Unfortunately, like I said earlier, since you're using old software
there won't be much interest in fixing this.
