For the avoidance of doubt: I'm not using it, and it isn't high up
enough on my priority list for me to actually do anything with it.

I wouldn't like to see the xenlvm virt provider stand in the way of
that.  It should be fairly simple for someone who actually has an
autopkgtest-xenlevel setup to change it to cope with your protocol

I think you should go ahead and make your changes to the protocol, and
if autopkgtest-xenlvm hasn't been fixed by just before the freeze, you
should drop the .deb from the build.
