I don't know where you would like to put it however the check should
remain there so if I guess just dropping XML/RNG related hunk would be
enough, i.e. dropping:

                 virBufferAsprintf(&xml, ">%s</machine>\n", machine->name);

This won't add anything to the domain XML file but it will be checking the number of (maximum) virtual CPUs doesn't exceed the machine type limit. However, for libvirt-based tools (i.e. virt-manager and virt-install) it would be nice to have option to expose it. Possibly by writing a new API, like: int virConnectGetMaxCPUsForMachineType(virConnectPtr conn, char *name). This would simply return number of vCPUs for specified machine type (identifier by name variable).

Or do you think just having the check but not exposing to any XML file will be fine?

Thanks,
Michal
