Some things aren't really clear, imho:

"Install the xen from the aur AUR. If you need only the xen-tools try xen-hv-tools or xen4 and kernel26-xen-dom0 packages from the AUR." Could this be clarified a bit? For example, when should one choose a paticular option?

"The standard arch kernel can be use to boot the domUs." So, domUs can use the standard kernel?

"In order for this to work one must add 'xen-blkfront' to the modules array in /etc/mkinitcpio.conf" On the domUs?

"The basic idea behind adding a domU is as follows. We must get the domU kernels (...)" BUT one can also use a standard archlinux kernel?

Also, I am wondering if it is possible to use LVM filesystems and/or encrypted (LUKS) filesystems.
