Xen is part of RHEL5. RHEL5 will be supported until 2014.
So Xen will be supported in RHEL5 until 2014. Redhat has stated this many times.

Also, will Xen be carried forward should Xen be dropped from RHEL?


RHEL6 will run as Xen guest/domU, even if RHEL6 won't have Xen dom0 support.
Upstream Xen development is very active, so no worries there either.
