Will we have different cpu bandwidth for different vcpus?

Something like this:

vcpu1: 1000000/250000
vcpu2: 1000000/500000
vcpu3: 1000000/300000
vcpu4: 1000000/400000

IMO, that is not required, we can have a top level bandwitdh for the VM
and then redistribute it among vcpus equally, without user knowing about
it.

Something like this:

VM1(4vcpu) has to be throttled at 1CPU bandwidth using SetSchedParamters.

Internally libvirt splits it equally:
vcpu1: 1000000/250000
vcpu2: 1000000/250000
vcpu3: 1000000/250000
vcpu4: 1000000/250000

So why introduce VCPU level apis?
