You mean moving the check to the caller?

I think qemuDomainDeviceDefValidate() is a better choice because
it should allow you to implement the checks once, potentially with
more context such as information about the domain and QEMU
capabilities, and have them performed regardless of whether the
device is being processed eg. during regular parsing or hotplug.
