You should be find on an 6x7 enlarger since the Xpan negs are 65mm wide.
This is certainly my experience. Honestly, I've never noticed any vignetting, and I've shot slide film with it, also.

I can also say these lenses are incredibly sharp. As for neg carriers, I've taken regular (metal) 35mm carriers, measured out the dimensions of the XPan neg, and used a plasma torch to cut out the new size precisely...it was then a simple matter of filing it smooth and using metal sandpaper to make it extra smooth.
