I don't want multiplexed monitor sessions, at all.
I'm very happy to finally see them.  Finally one can run vms with
libvirt and *still* access the monitor for debugging and development

Right, I like them for that purpose as well.  But not for ordinary control.

How do you want to differentiate? What further complications would this
bring us?

I'm not sure I understand your questions. Multiple monitor sessions are like multiple shell sessions. I don't think a control program should use more than one session, but it should allow a developer to connect to issue 'info registers' and 'x/20i' commands. Of course if a developer issues 'quit' or a hotunplug command, things will break.

Please no more async notifications to the monitors. They are just ugly
to parse, at least for us humans. I don't want to see any notification
in the middle of my half-typed command e.g.

If we can identify an interactive session, we might redraw the partial command after the prompt.

btw, why would a human enable notifications? Note notifications enabled on the management session will only be displayed there.

Do not meddle in the internals of kernels, for they are subtle and quick to panic.
