[Xen-users] Is Qemu Required on Jessie?

Is qemu needed?
I am running jessie and have installed Xen 4.4.1 and don't know if it is 
necessary to install qemu. I have found two references:

says -
 # For old Debian versions on the host (up to squeeze):
 aptitude install xen-qemu-dm

 # For newer Debian versions on the host:
 aptitude install qemu-system-x86
Note that later versions of Xen Project software now can use the default, 
unmodified QEMU software, so this step may not be needed in recent releases.

says -
 To get Xen HVM support on Squeeze the qemu device model package, which 
provides the necessary emulation infrastructure for an HVM guest, is also 
apt-get install xen-qemu-dm-4.0

This is no longer needed in Wheezy since the device model is part of the Xen 
I am not sure what is ment by 'no longer needed in Wheezy'. Is it that specific 
version of qemu or qemu in general. not required?

Just for reference:
