Does Xen allow the RAM overcomittment? Like other virtualisation solution (openVz, vserver).

A typical example is :

5 Domu who use normally 30MB of RAM but can reach (in full utilisation) for a slice of time 150MB of RAM. I only have 512MB installed on my workstation. Can I run these VM's or I need more RAM : 5 X 150MB for VM's + 128 for Dom0 = 878 MB of RAM..

is this case possible?

Thank you.
