When you prepare the documentation for TL2009, you might want to add a 
few lines about testing the xetex installation.  In the texlive guide 
for TL2008, Section 3.5 gives 7 steps for testing the installation.  I 
would suggest adding something like the following:

8. If you have installed xetex, you can test it as follows:

 >  xetex opentype-info.tex
This is XeTeX, Version 3.1415926...
Output written on opentype-info.pdf (1 page).
Transcript written on opentype-info.log.

If you get an error message saying "Invalid fontname `Latin Modern 
Roman/ICU'...", you need to configure your system so that xetex can find 
the fonts shipped with texlive.  See ??? for instructions.  Here "???" 
is to be replaced by a suitable link and/or a section of the TL guide 
containing instructions as we've been discussing elsewhere
