If I'm limited to OSS in my guests, then why not just run it on my host? There are cases where it is useful, i.e. testing environments etc, but it very much depends on your usage.

E.g., to provide security environments. E.g., one Xen host can be a Web server on a firewall, thus implementing a virtual DMZ. This is very interesting for SOHO and private home installations that don't want to establish real DMZs with real machines.
