 My primary concern is what NetBSD version to use for the dom0, not the
 domU.  The "Installing NetBSD as privileged domain (Dom0)" section of
 the HOWTO currently says I should install 5.0.  If 5.0 is indeed the
 recommended release to use, I'd like to see an explanation of why that
 is the case (in the HOWTO, not in a response to this message), and if
 it's not the recommended version, then the HOWTO is just wrong.
