Solution
As explained in 5504, the above-stated Xenpak modules may be installed into any of three host products: N-Series, X-Pedition, and 1G694-13.

Host product manuals and release notes do not specifically state whether the Xenpak modules are hot-swappable.

As suggested by the following text extracted from the 10GBase-LR, -ER, -LX, -SR - QuickStart Guide, Xenpak modules are indeed hot-swappable:
Hot Swap
To hot swap a Xenpak PHY, do not press the hot swap button.
You may remove or install a PHY at any time.[/code]
