Looks like the answer is no.  Why would it be embedded though instead of
just asking qemu to load the ovmf firmware image into the device model
instead of the default seabios?  I've been doing this easily with just
qemu for a few years now.

If I understand you right, 16.04 hit a bad spot in time where it has a
new enough qemu to support ovmf, but a slightly older xen that did not.
Is that correct?
