We're going off-topic, but that is not necessarily the case. You can
have a xen guest boot a bootloader and load the kernel from the guest's
root filesystem.

Of course, this wouldn't work in a fully
virtualized or bare-metal environment. Perhaps we need separate
patterns for paravirtualized/container and
bare-metal/fully-virtualized environments, and have the system choose
the right pattern depending on the detected platform?

Some of that is already being done, at least partially.
