Now maybe talking out of my ass but I think Xen's advantage was that it was less expensive resources wise. So for desktop use, and light server use KVM is better, but for a heavy loaded virtualized server Xen is better.
I am sure the performance gap will close up fast. Particularly since KVm avoids the out of kernel maintenance overhead. Things that are mainlined in the kernel tend to get fresher ideas thrown at it.
