- base system (dom0) as lean as possible, just for Xen

Trying to lean things out to a great extent is generally a
waste of time. On any recent Linux distribution the base
install is sufficiently large that it's losing game and
saving a few GB of disk space is not worth the effort.

From the disk space POV you are correct, it's rarely going to be an
issue. But cutting out all unnecessary services is always a good thing
from the security/stability POV.

Good luck with that if your distro uses systemd. I recently found
gems such as KDE requiring mysqld because kdepim, which is included
in the default KDE package group. I very much doubt it is the only
instance of such insanities creeping into distributions.
