Sad, but true:
I'm not sure. Managers have decided to stop the BS2000 on ia64 project. Now
we are doing BS2000 on x86_64 (this time as HVM guest).
OTOH BS2000 on ia64 was stopped already in 1998 and was revived later. So
maybe it will come again. But I think we could easily make it run as HVM guest
(with some PV-drivers) in this case.

Thanks for remembering us, but I think you should not base any xen ia64 design
decisions on BS2000 requirements.
