The RHEL5 documentation has a section with identifies all the items considered
Technology Preview, for which ia64 Xen is clearly identified.

The RHEL5 documentation has a general section for performing installations
(Installation Guide) and makes no reference to virtualization.  

Installation with virtualization and other virtualization considerations are
addressed in the Virtualization Guide.

Given the structure we believe this is covered.  Please let me know if this suffice.
