AFAIK you have to do all the external VLANs on Dom0. SO if you wanted to work 
with VLANs10,20,30, and 40 you might setup br10, br20, br30, and br40 with 
eth0.10 in br10 and so on. You can then attach each DomU to as many or few of 
the VLANs as needed with multiple virtual NICs.

If all you want is for two DomUs on the same host to be able to communicate via 
a private network, then create another bridge, don't attach any NICs or VLANs 
to it, and attach a virtual NIC to each DomU for this bridge - ie you don't 
need to use VLANs for that.
Logically, it's the same as having two physical machines sat side by side, and 
hooking them together via a small switch not connected to anything else.
