My question is; does it make sense to utilize the one 128GB SSD drive
that I have as a dedicated drive solely for the dom0 diskspace?
Not really.
Dom0 uses it's own diskspace only when administrative tasks are performed. It reads executables from it, manipulates config files, etc. Even if the access was intensive, the FS cache would save the day. So, the slowness of the Dom0 disks does not affects the performance of DomU machines.
