Great question, David. I would say if testing could be done in Xen, then it 
could likely be done in Qubes. It's really difficult to mess with dom0 or how 
it looks, so I doubt you will have luck switching views. What guest OS will you 
mainly use for testing?  One option may be, if you're accustomed to Virtualbox 
for Windows for example, setting up a Windows VM how you like it for testing 
and loading a guests in there. I can't comment on the performance of Virtualbox 
inside of a VM though. Has anyone else done this?
