A. yes, here is the entry info
service smtp
        flags           = REUSE NAMEINARGS
        socket_type     = stream
        protocol        = tcp
        wait            = no
        user            = qmaild
        server          = /usr/sbin/tcpd
        server_args     = /var/qmail/bin/tcp-env -R /var/qmail/bin/qmail -smtpd

This method will allow you to set environment variables and whatnot in /etc/hosts.allow. Although xinetd can be compiled with libwrap support, this doesn't mean it can completly replace tcpd's functionality. xinetd calls host_access(), which performs the access control documented in host_access(5) man page. This is a subset of the features offered by tcpd.
