Thank you! I believe you have found me a solution for a dom0 kernel, although it does not involve splitting open the rpm packages. I will know when I get some time to read up on git kernel tree revision control.

If my assumptions are correct I should be able to download a snapshot of a supported kernel source from kernel.org and patches (to xenify) the source code from the git tree. After compiling the patched source code into a -xen kernel I will make a binary deb package.
