You're right that paravirt is a step in the right direction. It still carries a ton of crap along with it though. You still need a full kernel with all the drivers, logging infrastructure, cron, inetd, and so on... If the paravirt crews do a really good job at getting rid of this unimportant junk (where unimportant means "not directly related to the application I'm trying to run"), I'll definitely sit up and take notice.
At the moment, though, there's little appreciable performance difference between Xen and KVM (for my apps anyway). And KVM is sooooo much easier to set up and run. So, although it doesn't improve my life much today, I agree that paravirt could potentially become an excellent solution in a few years.
