How would the interface look like once we:
- let libvirt know which features are available on each CPU model
  (libvirt needs that information[1]); and
- add machine-type-specific cpudef compatibility changes?

Would the command report different results depending on -machine?

Would the command return the latest cpudef without any machine-type
hacks, and libvirt would have to query for the cpudef compatibility data
for each machine-type and combine both pieces of information itself?

[1] Note that it doesn't have to be low-level leaf-by-leaf
    register-by-register CPUID bits (I prefer a more high-level
    interface, myself), but it has to at least say "feature FOO is
    enabled/disabled" for a set of features libvirt cares about.
