Question Xen on FreeBSD to be like Qubes?

Is there any easy way to for FreeBSD Xen setup sort of like Qubes? QubesOS lets users setup 'AppVMs,' i.e., they just install OSes in VMs then can run GUI programs from those in the host's GUI as if native.

Apparently QubesOS was designed for paranoid security reasons, relevant to some people, but not me.

I just do many things so am interested in convenience of running programs, from almost any OS, in a GUI on FreeBSD (i.e., as if native... not having them inset in a VM window.)

Maybe Qubes works for command-line VM access but unfortunately I don't think boots to command-line.

I asked this for NetBSD, maybe said too much and confused people the question is not for security, but to have more GUI programs... but I think once a desktop and laptop I have have certain driver support, I'll run FreeBSD again. I liked that NetBSD was considered most stable, oldest or most traditional, but I'm sure now the FreeBSD kernel is also very stable, and now I prefer continual (rather than quarterly) release of extra packages.
