To be honest, I think we'll need KVM, Xen, and QEMU specific machines.

The right default set of hardware for all three is different.
Right, I agree. This is why I put the exception for the platform device.
There are probably some more devices for which the same applies.

But these exceptions all about guest state. If qdev was finished, this
would be a matter of having a different configuration file, right?

This series, as I understand it, is adding much more to the Xen FV
machine. Things that are not about which devices a VM contains, but
about some implementation details of the host.

Yeah, but dropping the target-xen will probably fix most of that stuff.
