For the truly paranoid, a virtualization model where each virtual machine has its own kernel (ie. Xen) probably makes more sense. On large servers with only a handful of virtual machines, this model works great too.
However, for massive virtualization (think of ISPs, with hundreds of virtual machines on a system) the lower memory overhead and more flexible resource allocation of OpenVZ are probably very much worth it.
Both virtualization models have their place. I hope that we'll end up seeing both in the upstream kernel.
