It has nothing to do with GRUB. GRUB built for EFI will run on any
platform that provides EFI environment. Xen does not provide it.

If you insist on running GRUB for EFI on domU you have to ask Xen
developers to implement EFI in hypervisor. Then GRUB for EFI will
magically start to work.

Until this happens you can use GRUB2 in domU as I already told you; I
still do not understand why it must be "GRUB for EFI" as user facing
part (grub.cfg) is the same so what difference does it make?
