So anyone using it or thinking about it would still consider it viable as an
open source project then?

Sure. You cannot exactly just close-source a GPL-ed project. It just means Xen now has a "sponsor" for enterprise installations in corporate environments where managers feel better if they pay for something because they misguidedly believe that passing the buck up the vendor chain makes it less of their responsibility when something goes wrong. :-)
