I don't understand what this has to do with Xen or similar approaches. 
Every process has it's own address space anyway. And if there 
are local root exploits, they need to be fixed, just as security flaws 
that might exist in Xen or whatever. Just the fact that Xen enables you 
to run several operating system instances does not increase security.
