That depends on implementation, I think.

Noticed Andi's response for the mail that "It would be better if you checked
that on the host and then set it appropiately in the guest too." and agree with
For migration, I think this only extend the host requirement from CPU to
memory. For example, we can't migrate guest from host supporting SSE4
instruciton to host does not support it if we don't limit guest's CPUID.
Also, another potential issue is, not sure if Windows guest will utilize the
ECC support or not, although it should not.
BTW, I'm not against the change, which is not critical.
