Errrr, no.
http://xenbits.xen.org/xen-unstable.hg?file/8f304c003af4/tools/libxl/libxl.c shows that the videoram node will be set only if we are using a device-model. And specifically if we are in fully virtualized mode, i.e. dm_info->type == XENFV, i.e. *not* PV

I understand that this can be confusing, but at the moment we have two
videoram parameters: dm_info->videoram is for the device model while
b_info->video_memkb is for domain building.
If you look at init_dm_info, you'll see that dm_info->videoram is set
from b_info->video_memkb.
Also if you read libxl_dom.c:build_post you'll see that no matter if the
guest is a pv or an hvm domain, memory/videoram will be written to
xenstore anyway.
